State Rep. Dale Kooyenga, R-Brookfield, is among legislators who feel the national board are sufficient for allowing chiropractors to practice in Wisconsin.
Zach Chudy moved away from Waukesha so he could pursue his dream of joining his father’s chiropractic office. After years of school, hard work and a few trips between Iowa and Wisconsin sprinkled in, he is ready to leave Palmer Chiropractic College to finish his clinical hours at Chudy Chiropractic Clinic on North Grandview Boulevard in Waukesha where Chudy hopes to work after graduation.

The days of claiming the alternative minimum tax credit, historic rehabilitation tax credit and the working family tax credit may be over as State Assembly Republicans look at possibly cutting them.
If you were among the 790 families that claimed the working family tax credit or the 418 who claimed the historic rehabilitation tax credit, the 2012 tax year may be your last to do so.

Dale Kooyenga (R-Brookfield) told the Journal Sentinel that he's trying to simplify the tax code because it is "horrendous" and …
