Senate to bypass contentious bills
Placeholder Image
MADISON (AP) - The Wisconsin Senate likely won't take up bills that would outlaw so-called sanctuary cities for immigrants, increase compensation for the wrongly convicted and allow students to deduct debt from their income taxes when it convenes Tuesday for what's expected to be the last floor period of the two-year legislative session. Republicans who control the chamber released the agenda Monday. The Assembly finished its work for the session last month; if Senate Republicans stick to the agenda, the immigration, wrongful conviction and student debt bills, as well as a number of measures to combat dementia, are all probably dead.
