Marti Mikkelson and JR Ross discuss the week in politics in "Capitol Notes".

The conservative Wisconsin Supreme Court overturned Democratic Gov. Tony Evers’ safer-at-home order last week, effective immediately. Schools are still closed, but most nonessential businesses can resume operations — unless local governments have their own stay-at-home restrictions. At this time, there's no statewide plan for protecting public safety or reopening the economy.

In this week’s Capitol Notes conversation, WUWM's Marti Mikkelson asked JR Ross of if he expects Evers and Republican legislative leaders to craft a plan or if Wisconsin will move forward with a "patchwork" of rules.

Marti was a reporter with WUWM from 1999 to 2021.
