DON'T TAKE YOUR EYES OFF WISCONSIN:

Idaho OKs bill limiting bargaining (JENNIFER EPSTEIN, 3/8/11, Politico)

As Wisconsin politicians stay locked in a stalemate over a proposed law governing public employees’ unions, Idaho’s legislature on Tuesday passed a bill restricting collective bargaining rights for the state’s unionized teachers.

Under the bill, which is expected to be signed into law by the state’s Republican governor, collective bargaining for the state’s 12,000 unionized teachers would be limited to salary and benefits only, and could not be used to negotiate course loads, class sizes and other working conditions.


Having made a fetish of one state's tussle the Democrats are letting the GOP do whatever it wants everywhere else.
