    I'm not exactly sure how that will work out for you. 24 hour notice to whom? There were 14 Democrats, that no one has any idea where they are. So giving them 24 hour notice, could have been done........ that fact that they didn't receive it, could just as easily be because they are in hiding. But I'm betting you will have 18 Republicans swearing .. that notice was given.

    Representative Barca stated he had not received 24 hours notice as required by law. I saw the video taken at the meeting. It is a matter of public record so it will not matter if the Republicans now decide to lie about it in unison.

    24 hour notice is not always required:

    Generally speaking, the open meetings law applies to the state Legislature, including the senate, assembly and any committees or subunits of those bodies. Wis. Stat. 19.87. The law does not apply to any partisan caucus of the senate or assembly. Wis. Stat. 19.87(3). The open meetings law also does not apply where it conflicts with a rule of the Legislature, senate or assembly. Wis. Stat. 19.87(2). Additional restrictions are set forth in Wis. Stat. 19.87.

    Public notice of every meeting of a governmental body shall be given at least 24 hours prior to the commencement of such meeting unless for good cause such notice is impossible or impractical, in which case shorter notice may be given, but in no case may the notice be provided less than 2 hours in advance of the meeting.

    As it was a bi-partisan committee meeting, that rules out your first excuse. And because nothing prevented notice (except unwillingness), your second excuse does not apply either.

    What "facts" would those be?

    How about you're not an attorney? How about letting the courts decide? Oh, wait, that's much to democratic. Let's settle it in the streets.
