Wisconsin Republicans Make Little Progress On Lame-Duck Bills

(Madison, WI)  --  Republican legislators in Wisconsin are continuing to work on a series of bills limiting the powers of incoming Democratic Governor Tony Evers and Attorney General Josh Kaul as part of a lame-duck session.  Neither chamber had passed the most controversial bills after working late into last night.  The bills would restrict early voting and  limit the incoming governor and attorney general's powers.

Lawmakers did approve a measure to enact medicaid work requirement rules that Governor Walker recently won a federal waiver to establish.  The bill gives the legislature oversight over the governor seeking future waivers for health care. 

Assembly Speaker Robin Vos had hoped to have the bills to Governor Scott Walker's desk by the end of last night, but was met with fierce opposition in both chambers from Democrats.
