State Supreme Court to rule on lame duck laws

MADISON (WKOW) -- The Wisconsin Supreme Court is scheduled to rule on whether laws limiting the powers of the governor and attorney general are unconstitutional Thursday.

The case challenges laws that Republican lawmakers passed in 2018 before Governor Tony Evers and Attorney General Josh Kaul were sworn into office.

The Service Employee International Union argues that the laws violate the state's constitutions separation of powers.

This is the second attempt by liberal groups to overturn lame-duck laws. Justices sided with GOP lawmakers last year and ordered the extraordinary session laws be upheld, under a lawsuit brought by the League of Women Voters and other groups.
