URGENT: Video shows beheading of second American journalist

DUBAI (Reuters) - The Islamic State militant group released a video purporting to show the beheading of U.S. hostage Steven Sotloff, the SITE monitoring service reported on Tuesday. A masked figure in the video also issued a threat against a British hostage, a man the group named as David Haines, and warned governments to back off "this evil alliance of America against the Islamic State", the monitoring service said.

Gov. Scott Walker meets with Dems; urges ongoing discussion

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker pauses for a moment in Madison

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Governor Scott Walker has told minority Democrats that he’ll discuss their concerns as the new two-year session goes on.

The Republican Walker spent about 15 minutes with Assembly Democrats Wednesday.

They asked about his willingness to address gun violence, re-do the state aid formula for public schools, and create a fairer redistricting process. They also asked Walker about his commitment to Wisconsin agriculture, and whether he’d make lighting in state buildings more energy efficient.

Walker said he would address those issues as he prepares his state budget request that he’ll deliver to the Legislature next month. He especially encouraged the 14 newly-elected Assembly Democrats to meet with him often during the session.

Walker and majority Republicans teamed up to approve a number of controversial bills in the last session with little or no Democratic input.

This time, GOP Assembly Speaker Robin Vos has vowed to be a better listener to the minority – but Republicans still have the votes to pass anything they want.
