Here is the latest Wisconsin news from The Associated Press at 9:40 p.m. CDT

RINGLE, Wis. (AP) — A Wisconsin fugitive is back in custody after a hunter discovered him hiding in a makeshift bunker in the woods. WSAW-TV reports that Thomas Nelson of Wausau was hunting on state land in the township of Ringle west of Wausau on Friday when he found the door to the bunker. Nelson went inside and discovered Jeremiah Button, who disappeared in 2016 just weeks before he was set to stand trial on child sexual assault and child pornography charges.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Foxconn Technology Group executives met Wednesday with Wisconsin’s governor, legislative leaders and others but no one is saying much about what they discussed. Foxconn, the world’s leading electronics manufacturer, has been under the spotlight in Wisconsin ever since striking a deal in 2017 to build a flat-screen display panel plant heralded by President Donald Trump as the “eighth wonder of the world.”

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Republican lawmakers in Wisconsin have found themselves in the unusual position of breaking with anti-abortion groups and advocating for a bill that broadens birth control access, an area where Democrats typically lead. Under the bill heard Wednesday by the Assembly health committee, pharmacists could prescribe hormonal contraceptive patches and birth control pills, but patients would first have to fill out a self-assessment questionnaire and undergo a blood pressure screening.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A political protester from Wisconsin who once ran against then-House Speaker Paul Ryan will plead guilty to seeking radioactive material under terms of a plea agreement filed in federal court. Jeremy Ryan, no relation to Paul Ryan, was arrested last year by FBI agents after they caught him trying to buy radioactive material online. The Wisconsin State reports Wednesday that Ryan will enter the plea on Friday in federal court.
