January 2014

Spring Session Preview

The Legislature returns on January 14, 2014 for a flurry of session days before final adjournment on April 3, 2014. With the biennial budget and many other GOP big ticket items passed, the agenda this spring will include no bold policy strokes and will instead focus on smaller, more parochial issues. The Republican leadership, including the Gov. Walker, generally believes the sooner the Legislature finishes its business in Madison and launches their respective re-election campaigns, the better it is for them politically.
