Tonight on “Here & Now,” Democratic U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin weighs in on the sequester and what the across the board federal budget cuts mean for Wisconsin.
On the other side of the aisle, we hear from Republican U.S. Rep. Reid Ribble, who wants to give federal agencies flexibility in assigning the cuts.
Also tonight, how the Dodge County Jail went under the sequestration knives — early. Sheriff Todd Nehls details how U.S. Immigration officials directed he empty some of the illegal detainees housed at his jail to save money.
And, with the state Assembly poised to take up the contentious mining bill next week, we check in with both sides of that issue.
That’s tonight at 7:30 p.m. statewide on “Here & Now,” on WPT.
