"At the turn of the last century, Wisconsin was a critical incubator of early progressivism. In one year alone, 1911, Wisconsin’s legislature passed laws that created the nation’s first compensation fund for injured workers, a state income tax, environmental conservation programs and protections for women and children in the workplace. Now, Wisconsin is at the vanguard of a movement that aims to undermine the political tradition it helped to create." (02/11/11)
