Next week, the Wisconsin State Legislature will be in session for the first time since early February. Both houses are taking a more deliberate approach to bill drafting this session as compared to previous years. This is in part to see how much power, if any, the Republican Congress will send back to the states as they campaigned on last election. 

Some bills the Senate will vote on include:

  • Senate Joint Resolution 3 Relating to: deleting from the constitution the office of state treasurer (second consideration). 
  • Senate Bill 7 Relating to: expiration dates of renewed licenses to carry a concealed weapon. 
  • Senate Bill 12 Relating to: multiple jurisdiction health departments. 
  • Senate Bill 35 Relating to: mandatory reporting of child abuse and neglect by juvenile correctional officers. 

Meanwhile, the Assembly will be considering:

  • AB 26 Relating to: due dates for filing income and franchise tax returns, paying estimated income and franchise tax installment payments, and filing withholding tax returns.
  • AB 49 Relating to: definition of tetrahydrocannabinols and the use of cannabidiol.
  • AB 56 Relating to: advertising motor fuel prices by the half-gallon.
  • AB 59 Relating to: terminology change and corrections for emergency medical technicians and first responders.
  • AB 69 Relating to: access to investigational drugs, devices, and biological products and limitations on liability related to their use.
  • SB 2 Relating to: due dates for filing income and franchise tax returns, paying estimated income and franchise tax installment payments, and filing withholding tax returns.
  • SB 10 Relating to: definition of tetrahydrocannabinols and the use of cannabidiol.
