State Assembly adjourns session for year

Capitol Madison, WI

MADISON (AP) — The Wisconsin state Assembly has adjourned its regular session for the year following a marathon overnight session that didn’t conclude until 4:45 a.m. Friday.

During the more than 14 hours in session that began Thursday afternoon the Assembly passed a bill designed to make oral chemotherapy drugs more affordable, limit early voting hours, and impose new requirements for people exposed to asbestos who bring lawsuits for damages.

The chemotherapy bill must be passed by the Senate or it will die.

The Assembly scrapped its plans for a school accountability bill with sanctions for failing schools. Instead, it agreed with the Senate approach that only requires that test results and other data for all schools that take taxpayer money be made public.
