    From the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel:

    State Rep. Joel Kleefisch announced Tuesday that he is killing his controversial bill that would have capped how much wealthy Wisconsin residents would pay in child support. ...

    “After careful deliberation and consulting with my colleagues, I have decided to pull back AB 540," wrote Kleefisch, an Oconomowoc Republican. ...

    "While I am frustrated by the amount of misinformation the bill has encountered," Kleefisch said Tuesday, "I believe a fair and equitable child support system, one that fundamentally recognizes the value of both parents in the upbringing of a child, is an important issue and one that warrants serious conversation."

    Kudos to all who publicized this transgression and pressured Kleefisch to back off!
