And quite possibly even the State constitution itself
That's the effect of Wisconsin AG J.B. Van Hollen's latest decree, which claims the Legislative Reference Bureau's "publication" is what puts laws into effect for the purposes of the State constitution.
Unfortunately for JBVH there was no such thing as the Legislative Reference Bureau before 1901 and therefore, by Van Hollen's own reasoning, all laws enacted prior to the LRB's creation are nullities.
This situation is rapidly becoming not particularly amusing at all, when even the attorney general of Wisconsin is acting lawlessly.
One thing's for sure, this here blog's done defending J.B. Van Hollen.
As for Scott Walker's enforcement man Mike Huebsch, Huebsch's pronouncement that the Secretary of State has no authority to rescind a date of publication is irrelevant, as Dane County Circuit Judge Maryann Sumi's temporary restraining order enjoins the Secretary of State's prior directive. It doesn't matter whether it was rescinded or not, and thus the question of whether the Secretary of State has the authority to do so never even enters into the equation.
This administration's disrespect for the rule of law is appalling.
And this is all on Walker and his henchpeople in the legislature.
