BREAKING NEWS: A federal appeals court rules 2-1 that subsidies that helped people buy insurance at healthcare.gov are illegal.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A U.S. appeals court on Tuesday threw out a federal regulation that implements key subsidies that are vital to President Barack Obama's healthcare overhaul. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit accepted one of the main legal challenges to the policy by conservatives opposed to an expansion of the federal government.

Wisconsin's 2nd wolf hunt to end Thurs.

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin's wolf hunt will be finished after tomorrow in all but a small portion of the state. 

The DNR said this afternoon that Zone-Six -- the one that covers the lower three-fourths of the Badger State -- will end its season at two p-m tomorrow. 

After that, the only zone to be open will be Number-Three, which covers parts of six counties in northwest Wisconsin. 

The quota for Zone-Six was 30 wolves, and 29 were taken as of earlier today. 

Statewide, the quota is 251 and only about 50 were still available early in the week. 

The DNR said Zone-Six harvested about one wolf per day in recent days. 

This year's statewide wolf season has only been open for 23 days, and it will close once the quota is reached in the zone that covers parts of Burnett, Washburn, Sawyer, Rusk, Price, and Taylor counties. 

Last year, the wolf season ran for about half of the four-and-a-half months it was scheduled to be open. DNR officials are not sure why the harvest was so rapid -- especially because more than twice as many wolves were available to hunters than a year ago.
