The Wisconsin Assembly decided two votes on rules changes Thursday along party lines.

State Representative Jimmy Anderson, who is paralyzed, will be able to phone-in to meetings when he can’t attend, but his plea that other rules changes be set aside was ignored. Anderson wound up voting against the changes he had requested. He and other Democrats were against some parts of the total package which was decided, including one on overriding a governor’s veto. They have called the rules package “a power grab.”
