MADISON (WKOW) — Throughout the lame-duck session, protesters and opponents have been a constant presence.
Many spent hours at Monday’s public hearing and joint finance committee and came back Tuesday at 11:00 a.m. when the senate was supposed to start.
Hundreds have come in and out since with about a dozen staying late into the night including, Grant Widmer.
He said he believes these bills are a power grab from the Republican party to undermine the incoming Democratic Governor Tony Evers and Attorney General Josh Kaul. Widmer claims the bills specifically strip powers that would allow Evers and Kaul to fulfill some of the campaign promises that got them elected in favor of protecting a few of Gov. Scott Walker’s policies.
