Administration won't appeal federal ruling on Capitol permits


MADISON (WKOW) -- The Wisconsin Department of Administration says it will not appeal the injunction issued by a federal judge this week that alters the permitting process for gatherings in the State Capitol rotunda.

The permitting process is being challenged in a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union.

Below is the full state sent to WKOW 27 NEws from Dept. of Administration Secretary Mike Huebsch:

"We thank U.S. District Judge William Conley for his thorough review of this case and his decision that recognizes the permitting process for our state capitol is constitutional. While the judge did change the threshold of when a permit is required from four to 20 people, the Department of Administration will not appeal the court's decision. The permit process remains in full effect for the capitol rotunda and grounds, and we will comply and enforce the court order."
