Wisconsin lawmakers have held another special legislative session that lasted only a minute or so. Republican leaders gaveled the session in at 12:30 p-m Tuesday, then immediately gaveled it out. Thirty minutes later Senate Republicans did the same thing. Governor Tony Evers had called the session to take action on his plan to upgrade Wisconsin’s unemployment benefits system. Legislative leaders say Evers has the money and the means to advance a five-million-dollar upgrade for the benefits system. They call the governor’s actions a “dog-and-pony show.” A spokesperson for Evers says the funds aren’t available to him.
