The GOP-controlled legislature is planning an extraordinary session to pass legislation while Gov. Scott Walker still holds office and before Gov-elect Tony Evers takes office on January 7, 2019.  This could happen as soon as the week of Dec 3.

According to media reports (see: Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Wisconsin State Journal), several items are being discussed for the session:

  • A subsidy package to Kimberly-Clark to prevent the closing of a plant in the Fox Cities;
  • Moving the date of the 2020 Presidential primary;
  • Work requirements for certain BadgerCare recipients;
  • Changes to the recently created office of state solicitor general;
  • Writing into to state law existing administrative rules on voter ID;
  • Taking away certain powers related to state agency rulemaking recently given to the governor; and
  • Changes to the makeup of the state job agency oversight board.
