Heeding warnings from the FBI to prepare for armed protestors around the Jan. 20 Presidential Inauguration, Wisconsin and other states have tightened security and, according to two lawmakers representing Waunakee and DeForest, urged staff to work remotely if they are able.

State Sen. Jon Erpenbach’s office noted that the Wisconsin Department of Administration has boarded up windows around the capitol building in Madison.
