MADISON (AP) — Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel is asking the state Supreme Court to take a case related to how much influence Governor Scott Walker can have in the state’s education department.

The appeals court ruled that the law essentially gives the governor veto authority over anything the elected state schools superintendent proposes, interfering with the superintendent’s constitutional powers to supervise public education.
The state Supreme Court is controlled by a majority of conservative-leaning justices. It is not obligated to take the case just because Schimel, a Republican, asked for a review.
