Dalai Lama to speak to Wisconsin Legislature

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The Dalai Lama is scheduled to deliver a 45-minute address to joint meeting of the Legislature on Tuesday afternoon.

The speech comes in the middle of a four-day visit to the Madison area for Tibet's spiritual leader. He's also scheduled to meet privately with Gov. Scott Walker.

The state Senate is scheduled to take a break from its business on Tuesday so its members can join with those in the Assembly for the speech.

The visit marks the ninth time the Dalai Lama has come to Madison.

The Dalai Lama is also scheduled to give a series of public talks in Madison on Tuesday and Wednesday and meet with Tibetan college students from Minnesota, Illinois and Wisconsin on Thursday.
