- Tribal leaders and others hope to convince Governor Scott Walker to veto a bill that would make it harder to strip public schools of American Indian mascots.The governor still isn't saying what he will do.The leader of the Great Lakes Indian Fish and Wildlife Commission wrote to Walker on November 8th urging him to kill the bill. Jim Zorn said using American Indians as mascots is stereotyping.
Senate Democrats sent Walker a similar letter last week.Walker has declined to say whether he supports the measure.If Walker takes no action on the bill by December 12th, he'll trigger a six-day deadline to make a move. If he does nothing the bill would automatically become law at the end of that time.(Copyright 2013 Associated Press - All Rights Reserved)
