The governor and Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald, R-Juneau, said flatly Friday that the law will take effect on Saturday. But Reference Bureau Director Steve Miller said his department's publication of the act was only administrative. He said La Follette still needs to publish the act in the Wisconsin State Journal...The struggle continues, and I'm sure the Wisconsin people are exasperated... but who with?
"Every attorney I have consulted said this will now be law," said Fitzgerald, who said he was aware this was going to happen. "It wasn't a secret. I think they left the door open for this."

Wisconsin collective bargaining law is published despite the court order barring Secretary of State Doug La Follette from publishing it.
So... a loophole? It got published by someone other than La Follette?!
