Parth Shah, of Wisconsin Public Radio, has written a brief article about the probable stalling of Wisconsin's proposed Assembly Bill 620; which would potentially allow property owners to excavate effigy mounds on their property.

"Ho-Chunk nation tribal Chief Clayton Winneshiek said that he sees Vos's statement as a small victory, although he thinks the bill will eventually "be brought back in a different manner." He stressed that the state's tribes are prepared to take on the state government again if the bill is reintroduced."
