I tavern league Back Border Bill by Doug Mell state government reporter when gov. Anthony Earl signs the Bill raising the states drinking age Early in june it will be a Strong rebuke of the tavern league of Wisconsin according to legislators and others. Democratic leaders who strongly opposed the 21-year drinking age have condemned the tavern league for fighting an alternative to a higher drinking age that would have kept Young non resident drinkers out of Wisconsin bars. One of the strongest tavern league critics is Assembly speaker Thomas Lof Tus a Sun Prairie who blamed the group for helping Force Earl into supporting a higher drinking age.

I the number of Homes resold in Wisconsin increased 4 percent in april As the states House a Industry headed toward its second Best year Ever according to a report from the Wisconsin realtors association. Lower interest rates and stable prices for Homes contributed to the resales increase said sue Wiskowski realtors association president. The realtors association report shows the number of Home resales in april was 5,882. When adjusted to account for the season the total was 4 percent greater than in March and 8.6 percent greater than in april 1985. For the first four months of this year the Home resales total is 2,476. That puts the state on track for its Best year in Home resales since 1978, which was the Best year in history. In 1978, total resales were 80,400. If trends continue 1986 would yield about 75,000 resales 1,300 More than in 1979, the current second place year. Boosting the resales Industry is. Wis Kowski said is the fact that Homes Are More affordable than they have been at any other time in the 1980s. Improving the affordability is a drop in Home loan interest rates. The average rate for a 30-year loan in which the rate is fixed for the life of the loan was 10.16 percent in april Down from 10.28 percent in March according to realtors association data. A year ago the average rate was 13.16 percent. Also improving affordability is a slow increase in House prices. The median Price for a Home resold in april was $58,521, according to realtors association data. That was up less than i percent from March. Half of Homes carry prices higher than the median. The report concluded that a Wisconsin family with the median state income has 44 percent More than enough income to qualify to buy the median priced Home. That is the Best affordability figure since Early 1979. Realtors association reports Are based on sales data covering about 80 percent of the states housing Market.
