MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A group of Democratic Assembly members who walked to Republican Gov. Scott Walker’s office have been allowed to meet with one of his top aides.
The Democrats walked from the room where they were meeting in closed caucus down to Walker’s office to talk about ways to end the impasse over a bill taking away collective bargaining rights from public workers.
Democrats have complained that Walker is unwilling to negotiate with them.
They were met at Walker’s office by Mike Huebsch, secretary of Walker’s Department of Administration. Walker spokesman Cullen Werwie said the governor did not meet with the lawmakers.
