Republican leaders of the Wisconsin Legislature say they are confident the changes they approved this week will withstand any legal challenge. 

Duties and responsibilities for the governor and attorney general are being limited after the election of Democrats Tony Evers and Josh Kaul.  One bill restricts early voting to two weeks before an election.  Another seeks to protect the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation.
