MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A civil liberties group says it’s going to sue, as demonstrators were defying new rules from the Walker administration.

Rules for Statehouse demonstrations were revised and then released last Friday.

The new version makes it clear no permits are needed if families and tourists visit the Capitol.

Permits aren’t needed when people hand out political or religious pamphlets on the grounds, either.

The rule requiring permits for any group of four or more demonstrating inside the Capitol – or, 100 or more people outside – stays in place.

A spokesman for the governor said the policy changes were aimed at clearing up any misunderstandings about what the rules for such actions really are.
