Wisconsin Legislature Immediately Adjourns Special Session
Lawmakers convened the special session called by Gov. Tony Evers in an executive order issued in August on September 20.
The session immediately adjourned without considering proposals to enact a comprehensive workforce development package using some of the state’s projected $4 billion surplus in this biennium.
None of the 86 Republican legislators responded to the legislative survey launched by Evers last week, refusing to publicly state their positions on specific policy components of the governor’s workforce plan, the workforce plan in its entirety, and what initiatives or plans, if any, they support.
The special session reconvened September 21 for a skeletal session.
