MADISON - Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker released plans for welfare reform with increased work requirements on Monday.

It was part of a package of welfare reforms called "Wisconsin Works for Everyone" that Walker released during a series of news conferences across the state.
Packers look for next step after another NFC title game loss
GREEN BAY — With Aaron Rodgers in his prime, the Green Bay Packers should always be a contender to get to the Super Bowl. They just have to figure out how to win one more contest after coming up short in the NFC title game for the second time in three seasons. The offseason started Monday at subdued Lambeau Field. 
Antetokounmpo scores 31 in Bucks' 127-114 win over Rockets
MILWAUKEE — Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 31 points, Jabari Parker had 28 and the Milwaukee Bucks snapped a five-game losing streak with a 127-114 victory over the Houston Rockets on Monday night. James Harden just missed a triple-double with 26 points, 12 assists and nine rebounds for Houston, which fell to 1-1 on its five-game road trip. Patrick Beverley added 18 points.
Bill would limit influence of unions on public project bids Great Harvest eyes mid-February opening
MADISON — Two Republican lawmakers are proposing that Wisconsin limit union influence on bids for public projects. The proposal from Sen. Leah Vukmir and Rep. Rob Hutton would prohibit state and local governments from requiring contractors bidding on their projects to use unionized workers or enter into project labor agreements — collective bargaining agreements that establish rules controlling work on a project upfront, such as setting work hours or requiring workers to join a union. Few places in Wisconsin require them.

 

OCONOMOWOC — Great Harvest Bread Company is aiming to open its new store in downtown Oconomowoc the week after Valentine’s Day, said franchise owner Jon Rassmussen. The franchise, which Rassmussen describes as a bakery and cafe with a fast, casual vibe, will operate at 127 E. Wisconsin Ave. in a two-story building that owner Jason Dvorak is upgrading, using the $25,000 in loans the Oconomowoc Community Development Authority approved in late-August.

Wisconsin Democrats defend abortion access with resolution State lawmaker wants Milwaukee County sheriff removed
MADISON — Democratic lawmakers have introduced a resolution imploring their Republican colleagues not to restrict abortion access. Sen. Chris Larson of Milwaukee and Rep. Chris Taylor of Madison held a news conference to preemptively respond to expected Republican attempts to limit abortion access. The resolution calls on lawmakers to recognize abortions are an essential part of women's health care and to refrain from imposing burdensome regulations on providers. MILWAUKEE — A Democratic state lawmaker wants Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker to remove Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke from office, citing the deaths of four people at his jail last year and "repeated inappropriate" comments. Milwaukee Rep. David Crowley called for Clarke's removal in a letter Monday. Last week, a Milwaukee resident claimed Clarke had deputies question him for 15 minutes because he shook his head at him while boarding a plane.
