State Journal: Gov. Scott Walker has changed course on plans to remove fire-safety requirements from the state electrical code. Walker is now directing state officials to leave in place rules designed to detect fire-causing conditions and stop electric shocks, and to keep children from sticking foreign objects into electrical outlets.
"After reviewing some of the concerns raised with the proposed modifications to the rule, Governor Walker directed (the Department of Safety and Professional Services) to forgo any changes to the current rule," Walker spokesman Cullen Werwie said Monday in an email to the State Journal.
