Wisconsin's progressive Act 250 under attack

Representative Steve NassState Representative Steve Nass (right) has drafted legislation that would repeal Act 250, the law that established a complaint process to address race-based "Indian" mascots and logos in Wisconsin public schools. "The bill also aims to void all orders [to change race-based logos] issued by State Superintendent Tony Evers under the new law," reports the Wisconsin State Journal.

Barbara Munson, of the Wisconsin Indian Education Association and WNPJ's Board of Directors, compared trashing Act 250 with "repealing the Civil Rights Act. ... Wisconsin is at the forefront of this civil rights issue nationwide," said Munson, a member of the Oneida Nation.
