MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers has not yet decided what position to take in a lawsuit seeking repeal of laws passed by the Republican-controlled Legislature during a December lame-duck session. A coalition of groups filed the lawsuit last month arguing the session was unconstitutional because it amounted to an illegal gathering of lawmakers. Evers’ attorney Tamara Packard said at a scheduling hearing Monday that Evers “doesn’t know where he stands on the merits of this case.”

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A deer on a Forest County hunting ranch has tested positive for chronic wasting disease. The state Department of Agriculture, Trace and Consumer Protection officials issued a news release Monday saying tests confirm the six-year-old whitetail buck was infected.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Gov. Tony Evers says he plans to propose spending more than $43 million over the next two years to expand access to dental care in Wisconsin, particularly in underserved rural areas. The Eau Claire Leader-Telegram reported Monday that the proposal will include nearly $22 million in state money, with the other half coming in federal funding. More than $16 million is targeted to increase reimbursement rates for dental providers who see patients on Medicaid.

RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — Black Hills Federal Credit Union and a Wisconsin-based insurance company have agreed to pay $3 million to settle a class-action lawsuit claiming they improperly raised insurance premiums on thousands of loans. The proposed settlement to be considered by a judge later this month would resolve an eight-year-old lawsuit initially filed by a Rapid City couple. A hearing for final approval of the settlement is scheduled for later this month.
