Spokesman: GAB still studying Supreme Court decision

A GAB spokesman said the agency is still studying a Supreme Court decision to lift an order that prevented the agency from regulating issue ads.

A coalition of conservative groups sued the GAB seeking to stop it from enforsing the regulations, one of three suits filed over the rules.

In dealing with the suits, the GAB has already agreed to drop the rules.

"We're still assessing the impact of it," spokesman Reid Magney said.

The court this morning unanimously agreed to vacate its order preventing the GAB from enforcing the issue ad rules. But it split on why.

Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson wrote that she and fellow Justices Ann Walsh Bradley and Patrick Crooks believe the GAB has the authority to enforce the rules and the regulations do not violate the state or federal constitutions.

Justices Pat Roggensack, Annette Ziegler and Michael Gableman believe the court should not have taken original jurisdiction in the case.

Justice David Prosser withdrew from the case.
