MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A bill relaxing high-capacity well regulations in Wisconsin is scheduled for final legislative approval next week. The state Assembly announced Tuesday that it plans to vote on the bill May 2. It would then go to Gov. Scott Walker for his consideration. The Senate passed the bill earlier this month. The measure has pitted conservations who worry that the changes will drain aquafers, streams and lakes against farmers who say they need more water for irrigation.

KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) - Students have been dismissed early from a Kenosha high school while authorities investigate a stabbing. Authorities say a student has wounded in a stabbing by another student at Bradford High Tuesday morning. Police say a resource officer intervened and immediately arrested the student suspected in the stabbing. A weapon was recovered. Kenosha police say the victim was flown to an area trauma center and is being treated for life-threatening injuries.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The Wisconsin Department of Justice has concluded that secretly recorded videos of a Democratic activist bragging about deploying troublemakers at Donald Trump campaign rallies show no evidence that any laws were broken. Conservative activist James O'Keefe released secretly recorded and selectively edited video footage in October of Wisconsin-based liberal operative Scott Foval boasting about connections to the Democratic Party.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A prosecutor says a Lincoln County deputy who shot and killed a man during a traffic stop was justified in his actions. According to documents the state Department of Justice released Tuesday, Deputy Samuel Steckbauer was dispatched on Feb. 27 to investigate a report of a vehicle in a ditch in the Town of Corning. When Steckbauer arrived, the vehicle's driver, 40-year-old Shawn Igers, opened fire with a handgun, striking Steckbauer's squad car. Steckbecker returned fire and hit him three times.
