Wisconsin Legislature to consider tax cuts, water in 2020

By SCOTT BAUER Associated Press

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- It was a tough year in the Wisconsin Legislature. And 2020 doesn't promise to be much rosier.

Faced with a new Democratic governor, Republicans in control passed few bills of consequence in 2019 outside of the state budget.

They so angered one another that Gov. Tony Evers spewed four-letter words in the halls of the Capitol minutes after the Senate fired one of his Cabinet secretaries.

To end the year, Evers ticked off Republicans by trying to force a meeting of the Legislature's budget committee to approve money to combat homelessness.

So maybe it's no surprise that the Legislature will be in session only a handful of days in 2020.
