A statement by incoming Senate Majority Leader Devin LeMahieu makes it look like no legislation to deal with the coronavirus pandemic will be passed before the new year. Wednesday, LeMahieu said the Senate won’t meet this month. The last time Wisconsin lawmakers passed any legislation was more than eight months ago. Assembly Republicans released some details of a 100-million-dollar package of relief Tuesday, but Democrats are calling it a power grab. Senate Democratic Leader Janet Bewley says the provisions give the Legislature’s Joint Finance Committee powers to make inappropriate decisions. After one day, the Assembly package of bills doesn’t appear to have much support in the Wisconsin Senate.
