It’s time for Wisconsin lawmakers to get back to work. The inauguration of the state Assembly is scheduled for 2:00 p-m today (Monday). Sixteen new members will be sworn-in along with 82 who are back for another term. Republicans hold a 60-to-38 majority. Members of the Wisconsin Senate will also be sworn-in. Members of the Assembly and Senate are expected to pass a package of COVID-19 response bills and address the way state elections are run. Their main job will be approving a two-year state budget. Democratic Governor Tony Evers and the Republican-controlled Legislature will try to find some common ground on the big issues – a job that has been a challenge in the past.
