Wisconsin's Walker weighing bill signings

That decision - whether to join or withdraw from this kind of litigation - has been one for the attorney general and governor. The sponsor, Rep. Rob VerHeulen of Walker, said it would simply let the Legislature intervene without the court approval that it now needs, regardless of which party is in power.

The new legislation would allow districts to apply to become "innovative districts" that are exempt from most state education rules and would answer to the new commission.

"This is a heck of a way to run a railroad", Democratic Senate Minority Leader Jennifer Shilling said as the Senate debate resumed at 5 a.m. Wednesday after a seven-hour impasse.

Michigan Republicans, succeeding the strategies of conservative lawmakers in Wisconsin, marched ahead to commence restricting the power of the approaching Democratic secretary of state and ready the stage for supplementary restraint on the Democrats who will succeed as the governor and attorney general in January.

The bills will next head to the state Senate.

The bill would limit the governor's ability to put in place administrative rules that enact laws and give the Legislature the power to control appointees to the board that runs the state economic development agency until September 1.

"We're seeing more and more public policy issues being addressed in the courts, rather than exclusively in the legislative branch", he said.

Kate Middleton reveals ALL about Prince William's 'nightmare' habit
There's gratitude for you - you invite military families to a big Christmas party, and then someone thumps you with a snowball. While they were there, Prince William made fun of Middleton's outfit when he noticed that her ensemble matched the decor.

The GOP lame duck power grab continued Thursday evening as Republicans in the state House passed legislation created to strip power from incoming Democrats on the Michigan State Board of Education. "You're sore losers. Does anybody think this is the right way to do business? You will go down in history as a disgrace".

State Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, R-Rochester, holds a press conference in the Assembly parlor, Tuesday Dec. 4, 2018 at the Capitol in Madison. "To you, this is all about politics".

Vos last month cited the desire to protect key Republican achievements from being undone by Evers. Evers has said he would like to renegotiate the deal.

This bill, along with a package of others, are part of Republican efforts in the state to try and ensure their legislative priorities can succeed despite Democratic control of the executive branch for the first time in eight years.

One of the new measures would limit early voting to a period of two weeks, a substantial cut for places like Milwaukee, where Democrats have a significant advantage over Republicans. Do we think that has something to do with Wisconsin's participation in a multi-state lawsuit from Republicans attempting to invalidate the Affordable Care Act? They made opposition to that lawsuit a central part of both of their campaigns.

Nessel, for example, has said she probably will not defend a law allowing faith-based groups to refuse to serve same-sex couples who want to adopt children.

A public policy analyst contends that Republicans would be very upset if Democrats did what the lame duck Republican leadership is doing in Wisconsin. Republicans argue that the new body, which would be made up of three Democratic and three Republican legislators appointed by the governor, would promote bipartisan cooperation.
