Legislative Republicans are rejecting Governor Evers’ call for a January 19th special session to address Wisconsin’s trouble unemployment program. Evers said that he understands revamping the outdate and aging system will take years, and that’s why it’s got to be done as soon as possible. G-O-P leaders claim legislative audits have shown the major issues with the backlog at the Department of Workforce Development during the pandemic were not due to an old computer system “but rather mismanagement of the agency itself.” Assembly Speaker Robin Vos said in a statement, “we are always open to passing necessary legislation, but unfortunately, this Special Session call is about politics; not about policy.”
