Fugitive in California killing caught in Wisconsin

KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) - The U.S. Marshals Service says a 20-year-old man wanted in a fatal shooting in San Diego has been arrested near the University of Wisconsin-Parkside campus.

Walker complains to feds about new air rules

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Gov. Scott Walker has sent a letter to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency warning new air pollution regulations would hurt Wisconsin and the nation.

President Barack Obama’s administration has proposed a rule calling for cutting carbon dioxide emissions by 30 percent by 2030.

Walker, a Republican, said in Monday’s letter that the state Public Service Commission estimates compliance could cost up to $13.4 billion in Wisconsin alone.

He says rule could increase electric rates by as much as 30 percent. He added Wisconsin obtains more than half its electricity from coal and shifting to natural gas will jeopardize reliability.

An EPA spokeswoman issued a statement saying any small price increases would be dwarfed by huge benefits and it’s too early to make reliability claims since states haven’t developed implementation plans.


Leibham resigns from state Senate month early

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Republican state Sen. Joe Leibham is resigning from the Senate a month before his term expires so he can pursue an undisclosed job opportunity.

Leibham, who is from Sheboygan, announced that he was resigning as of 4 p.m. Monday. He ran for Congress instead of seeking re-election this year and lost in the Republican primary to eventual winner Glenn Grothman. Devin LeMahieu won election to replace Leibham in the Senate and is taking his seat in January.

Leibham says he was resigning early “in the interest of considering future employment opportunities while being compliant with state law.”

The 45-year-old Leibham has been in the Senate since 2002 and served four years in the Assembly prior to that.
