Roys tries to get gallery filled

Rep. Kelda Roys, D-Madison, is trying to get the observers back into the gallery. This is coming as the crowds outside the Assembly are making the desk in front of us rumble with drumming.

"I must also point out that there were many many people who traveled for this vote."

Speaker Pro Tem Bill Kramer said they should have nudged each other to keep protesters in order. "If they wanted to stay in the gallery, they could have kept quiet."

Kramer ruled that the galleries don't need to be opened.

"I thought you were supposed to be have someone from the public be watching this," replied Rep. Mark Pocan, D-Madison, "I just don't want to have an invalid vote on this bill."

Kramer then pointed to the press and said WisEye is available.

Pocan then tried to argue there were some people who may have gotten off of work later and not gotten an ability to come into the gallery. That drew groans.

UPDATE: The drums have stopped.
