MADISON — A legislative committee on Thursday passed a resolution aimed at amending the state constitution to clarify that only U.S. citizens may vote in Wisconsin elections.
The Assembly Constitution and Ethics committee’s action moves Assembly Joint Resolution 54 one step closer to voters deciding the matter. AR 54 now heads to the Assembly floor for a vote. Proposed amendments to the Wisconsin constitution must pass in two consecutive sessions of the Legislature before the question can be placed on a state-wide ballot.
