New Wisconsin Lawmaker Called to Duty in Gulf

<i> Associated Press</i>

An Air National Guard sergeant elected last month to the state Legislature was sworn in Wednesday, two weeks early, so he can report for duty in the Persian Gulf.

Distance will be no object to doing his elected duty, says state Rep. Stephen L. Nass. The 38-year-old Republican from Whitewater promised to conduct his legislative affairs from overseas by telephone and fax machine.

Nass is to leave for three to six months of duty in the gulf on Friday with the 128th Air National Guard Refueling Group.
