The item was quietly put into a budget proposal that gives UW campuses more flexibility and freedom from state rules. It says Madison researchers would not have to follow state laws involving crimes against animals if bona fide scientific research is involved.

I was under the impression that state anti-cruelty laws already exempt research across the board. Maybe not Wisconsin?

Might be easier to get public opposition to this than you'd think - one of the 7? (I think) regional primate research centers is at Madison.
