Wisconsin's Teachers' Union Law Finally Resolved by State Supreme Court

You wouldn't know it by the slim coverage in the media, but earlier this week, the story involving Wisconsin's curtailment of some collective bargaining by teachers had its final resolution.

The Wisconsin state supreme court ruled in favor of the legislature and governor Scott Walker, overturning a lower court decision to stay the new law.

Funny how you haven't seen this happy ending to the Wisconsin public union tale covered as lavishly as the liberal print, network and cable media focused their attention on the initial protests.

But it's great news for Wisconsin taxpayers and a hopeful sign for conservatives elsewhere. Some states are coming to their senses and restoring sanity and limits to public sector employee compensation and negotiation powers.
