Wisconsin Lawmakers Adjourn Special Session
Wisconsin Lawmakers ended the third special session on December 22, with a final adjournment pursuant to Senate Joint Resolution 1.
The session was called by Gov. Tony Evers and began on August 31, 2020.
Wisconsin law does not require lawmakers to take any action during a special session and none was taken.
The constitution prohibits either chamber from adjourning without consent of the other for more than 3 days.
Lawmakers then convened and immediately adjourned every Tuesday and Thursday without taking any action until the final adjournment.
