(Madison, Wisconsin) 1000 clients and protesters march from Milwaukee to Capitol, joined by students, protesting welfare budget cuts of $30 million. [GROPPI - says we'll stay here.] Legis. furious. [Assemblyman Russell OLSON - says all feel it's despicable. We won't reward them by giving them more funds.] Police peacefully remove protesters. No arrests. National Guard protects Capitol. No hope of reform.
