The Legislature will take up a Republican package of election bills this week. One of them would require the Wisconsin Elections Commission to submit all guidance to the Legislature for approval. Another would give the Legislature the authority to fire employees and reduce funding for the commission if lawmakers determine any of them violated election laws. The Wisconsin Senate is scheduled to take up the measures Tuesday, followed by the Assembly Thursday. Governor Tony Evers is expected to use his veto pen on the package. He vetoed a similar package of bills last June.
