Minimum markup repeal moved to committee

Over at RightWisconsin[1], I have another update on the effort to repeal the state’s minimum markup law. The good news is that the bill has finally been moved to committee in the state Senate. The bad news is that the fall session of the legislature is over so there is no chance of passage before the holidays.

The legislature returns after the holidays, but as I explain in the article, “the committee needs to hold public hearings before then – preferably while Wisconsin’s consumers are all too aware that the Black Friday shopping deals are better in *gasp* Illinois than they are here. The Chicago Bears may be complete losers but, unlike Aaron Rodgers, when Jay Cutler throws his tablet at the ground he won’t have to cry at the replacement cost.”
