Wisconsin assembly to vote on national anthem

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The national anthem would have to be played before all sporting events held at Wisconsin venues that received any public funding.
The bill is up for a vote Tuesday in the state Assembly.
The sweeping proposal received bipartisan support in committee. A group representing parks and recreation areas across the state questioned whether it was manageable.
The requirement would apply at all levels of athletic events played on a field that ever received public money.
The bill would affect anything from a bar league softball game to the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field.
