Assembly to pass limited accountability bill

MADISON (AP) - Conservative Assembly Republicans planned to drop their widely panned plan to impose sanctions on failing schools and instead pass a more limited accountability bill Thursday that already cleared the Senate. No deal could be reached on the GOP's more expansive plan, which Rep. Jim Steineke had been working on in the final hours of the Assembly's last planned session day Thursday. Debate over that issue and more than 40 other pending bills was expected to last into the early morning hours Friday.
