Thompson brochure rapped As political associated press Madison a brochure to inform school and county officials about a program that ties welfare benefits to school attendance amounts to free political advertising for gov. Tommy g. Thompson critics say. The critics say the mailings make unsubstantiated claims and provide free ads for Thompson who is seeking re election this fall. A i thought it was strictly election year propaganda a Frank Nikolay of Colby a member of the University of Wisconsin Board of regents and a Clark county supervisor said tuesday. A it ought to have a disclaimer on it a authorized and paid for if ifs going to claim the governor has cured All the welfare problems in Wisconsin a Nikolay said. The brochure was sent by the department of health and social services to 5,000 school Board and county Board members legislators human services directors and the Media a to keep people up to Date on the program a said Agency spokesman David Blaska. The brochures Cost the state about $800 to mail he said. Blaska who authored articles in the brochure titled a a message from Doss Secretary Patricia a. Goodrich and a returning Hope to the chronically poor a said the material was informational and strictly factual. The brochures Deal with Lea fare a program initiated in Wisconsin in 1987 which Aims to keep children in welfare families in school. The program has received considerable National attention. It sanctions the families of truant children by cutting their monthly Aid to families with dependent children when teen age children have unexcused absences from school. The state is seeking to extend the program to include elementary school children. The state Agency brochure describes Lea fare As an unqualified Success at a bringing chronic truants Back to the classroom a and credits Lea fare and other Thompson initiatives for a reduction in the Ardc caseload. It dismisses the controversy surrounding the program As being a partly because it is new partly because it is a Large departure from the failed programs of the past and partly because it returns some of the decision making to the welfare Tom Corbett a research associate for the University of Wisconsin Madison a poverty research Institute and an authority on Lea fare said All those claims Are wholly unsubstantiated. Asked whether Lea fare has reduced truancy. Corbett said a no one knows the answer to that. In fact there is simply no answer to that question that would stand up under Corbett also said that while Ardc caseloads have declined the decline started nearly two years before Lea fare was and other Thompson administration welfare initiatives began. Democrats fail to override vetoes associated press Callow said he had not decided when he would retire but that it would be after the november election and within the next year or two. He said he thought the governors Power to appoint a new supreme court Justice might become an Issue in the race Between Republican gov. Tommy g. Thompson and the Likely democratic challenger Assembly speaker Tom Loftus. If Callow were to resign before dec. 31, the governor could appoint a temporary replacement to serve until the election of a permanent replacement next april.

Thompsons vetoes including one that eliminated a plan to make Grade schools teach about a Date republicans tuesday also sustained the governors vetoes of a provision that would have removed a a gag rules barring state employees from lobbying legislators and one eliminating the states right to allow mining in state Parks and forests. Rep. Barbara Notestein a Mil Waukee blasted Thompsons a glib and insensitive reason for vetoing the proposal to mandate instruction against sexual assault in elementary schools.

A teach them to read so they can read instruction manuals on self defense a Brancel said. The override vote was 61-38, falling five votes Short of the necessary 66, or two thirds vote. In the Senate 22 votes were needed. Democrats there also failed to get the necessary two thirds. A veto of a democratic proposal to repeal the gag Rule for state workers failed 64-35. Rep. David Prosser Rapple ton said the governor indicated he was willing to Compromise on the Issue but that democrats wanted state workers to be Able to lobby on government time As Well As private time. But the proposals sponsor rep. John Medinger a la Crosse said republicans were demonstrating a an arrogance of Power by siding with Thompson against an override. A a you re abdicating your responsibility As legislators and Are a part of the executive Branch a Medinger said.
