MADISON - Republican lawmakers have scratched most big-ticket items off their to-do list, but they've still got plenty to do as they work to bolster their campaign positions before the legislative session ends. Lawmakers return en masse to Madison after their holiday recess with Assembly and Senate floor debates Tuesday, kicking off a sprint to the end of the two-year session. Republicans spent most of last year imposing sweeping changes to the political landscape, passing the state budget, making Wisconsin a right-to-work state, reshaping the state elections board, barring prosecutors from using secretive John Doe investigative tactics against politicians and reworking campaign finance law.
