MADISON, Wis. - A spokeswoman for Gov. Scott Walker's administration says police will not issue tickets to people observing protests in the state Capitol, even though they have been warned they are subject to arrest.
Department of Administration spokeswoman Stephanie Marquis said in an email Wednesday that, "Observers will not receive citations."
She does not explain why police this week, including Wednesday, have been warning observers that they are subject to arrest.
Walker's administration wants protesters to get a permit for the daily sing along, but participants say they don't need one to exercise their free speech rights.
