MADISON -

U.S. District Judge William Conley on Monday said that portions of the Capitol access policy were unconstitutional.

He ruled that no group with fewer than 20 people can be required to get a permit.

Under the policy, permits were required for most activities in the Capitol involving four or more people.

Mike Huebsch, Walker's Department of Administration secretary, said Wednesday the judge's order won't be appealed.

The judge's order did not invalidate the permitting process itself.

Huebsch says it remains in full effect for the Capitol and grounds.
