Wisconsin Political Peace?

Bob Brewin | NextGov | March 22, 2011

There's still not a lot of amity between the two parties in the Wisconsin Statehouse following a bruising budget battle this past month. But as I report in our news columns today, three Democrats and two Republicans from the state's congressional delegation bonded to try to steer the next generation electronic health record system for the Defense and Veterans Affairs departments to local firm Epic Systems, located in Verona, about 10 miles south of the capitol in Madison. Money and jobs, it seems, trumps political differences.
