3. TONIGHT: Forum on Supreme Court reform in Eau Claire

The state Government Accountability Board will hold a required public hearing on new rules the board gave initial approval to last November, the next step in a several-step legal process to put the rules into effect.

The hearing is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. this coming Monday, March 30 at the GAB’s offices just off the Capitol Square. For more details on the hearing, go here.
