MADISON, Wis. (AP) – Two officials in Wisconsin Gov. Scott
Walker’s administration say preparations to implement the state’s
divisive collective bargaining law have been put on hold.
     The officials spoke to The Associated Press on Thursday on the
condition of anonymity because the governor hadn’t publicly
announced his plans. Walker planned to announce his plans on
Thursday.
     Dane County Circuit Judge Maryann Sumi declared earlier Thursday
that the law had not taken effect. Republican leaders contended
that it had because a state office published the law online on
Friday.
