MILWAUKEE (AP) - A state lawmaker wants to make the Wisconsin high school athletics association subject to open records and meetings laws after the group drew ridicule for instructing administrators to step in if fans boo or jeer rivals with common chants such as "air ball" or "season's over." Marinette Republican state Rep. John Nygren and Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association Executive Director Dave Anderson said they hope to chat face to face today. Nygren said he will discuss a bill he plans to introduce that would open the association to public records and meetings laws.
