MADISON, Wis. (AP) — As Gov.-elect Tony Evers moves ahead with his transition into office, Republican senators were meeting privately to discuss ways to limit his power as governor.
Republicans are returning with majorities in both the Senate and Assembly, while Evers and Democrats will control all the constitutional offices, including attorney general.
Senate Republicans planned to elect their leaders Monday and then meet privately to discuss a planned lame duck session either later this month or December.
Assembly Speaker Robin Vos says he’s open to the Legislature scaling back the governor’s power during that session. It will be their last chance to enact law changes under Gov. Scott Walker before he leaves office in January.
The session is supposed to be focused on a tax break bill for Kimberly-Clark Corp.
