Wisconsin governor urged to veto bills weakening Democrats

Young Kim is surrounded by supporters

That decision - whether to join or withdraw from this kind of litigation - has been one for the attorney general and governor. Walker has 10 days to sign the package after it's delivered to his office. But Democrats and proponents of the redistricting law say the incoming Democratic secretary of state is perfectly capable of implementing it without intrusion from the GOP-controlled Legislature. The measure would shift campaign finance powers from incoming Democrat Jocelyn Benson to a new bipartisan Fair Political Practices Commission - modeled after the Federal Election Commission - with six members appointed by the governor after being nominated by the two major political parties.

A day after Wisconsin Republicans approved a package of bills meant to restrict the powers of incoming Democratic leaders, Republican lawmakers in mi advanced a similar effort despite an outcry from Democrats.

The measure was approved on a 17-16 vote with all Democrats and one Republican voting against it.

The bills will next head to the state Senate.

Republicans dispute criticism that the legislation would undermine the role of the attorney general.

Walker is in his final five weeks as governor. Last night, that legislature voted to not just limit Democrats' power, but to actually make it harder for people to even vote.

After working into the early morning hours to ensure that the bills considered in the extraordinary session struck proper balance between the incoming Governor and the Legislative branch, I was unable to support a third proposal, SB 884.

"My pitch to Governor Walker will be a couple of things, but most importantly it's part of his legacy that as he's walking out the door that he can, I believe, do the right thing for the people of Wisconsin and consider some vetoes", Evers says. "If you vote for this, shame on you, you will go down in history as a disgrace", Hintz said.

"We have allowed far too much authority to flow to the executive", Vos said. "To you, this is all about politics".

Vos last month cited the desire to protect key Republican achievements from being undone by Evers. Evers has said he would like to renegotiate the deal.

The bill would restrict early voting ― which is generally known to increase voter turnout and thus help Democrats ― prevent Evers from banning guns in the state capitol without the Legislature's approval and give lawmakers increased control over a beleaguered state economic development agency. The Trump administration in October granted Walker's request for a waiver that would allow the state to enact the controversial policy, which Evers opposes and recently told reporters he might seek to unwind using his executive power.

The legislation would empower the Legislature to intervene in any suit at any stage - a right already granted to the attorney general. Democrats would likely need a permanent injunction to stop the changes for good, but Republicans would nearly certainly pursue appeals all the way to the state Supreme Court, which is controlled by conservative justices. They made opposition to that lawsuit a central part of both of their campaigns.

But the new legislation would also require that Evers obtain permission from the GOP legislature before seeking to tweak the conditions of federal waivers or making changes to public assistance programs. "She's perfectly capable of figuring out who is a Democrat and who is a Republican without the help of this lame-duck Legislature".
