MADISON — As we head into a new legislative session with the same split control of the executive and legislative branches, it’s a fair bet that we won’t see much substantial in the way of reform. Gov. Tony Evers will block any legislative effort to shrink government, so perhaps the best we can hope for is something close to the status quo.
The 100-day mark is often the timeline elected officials set to measure substantial accomplishments in a new session. A better gauge might be the first 180 days during which the first flurry of session legislation will be introduced, and the state budget will (likely) be signed.
