Push on for earlier school start date

MADISON (AP) - Wisconsin school administrators hope they'll soon be able to start the school year before Sept. 1. A state law enacted in 2000 and pushed by the tourism industry prohibits public schools from starting earlier than September. Republican Rep. Jim Ott is circulating a bill that would remove that restriction, and school groups that have made the date change a priority say support has never been so high.
