Wisconsin recall results and what it means for S.B. 5

As we recently reported, opponents of changes to Ohio’s Public Employees’ Collective Bargaining Law (popularly known as S.B. 5) recently succeeded in collecting the signatures necessary to place the issue of overturning S.B. 5 on the 2011 November ballot. We also noted that polling from the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute indicated that 56% of respondents favor repeal, while 32% support keeping the law in place.

Tuesday night, Wisconsin voters in six state senate districts went to the polls to vote on the proposed recall of six Republican state senators who voted in favor of similar (arguably, more aggressive) public bargaining reform proposed by Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker and passed by the Wisconsin State Assembly amid much partisan rancor. Republicans retained four of the six seats contested, narrowly averting the loss of a third seat that would have tipped the Wisconsin Senate majority in favor of the Democrats.
