WI POLITICAL CLIFF NOTES: LAME DUCK PUSH BACK, ID CARDS FOR ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS

Democratic Governor Tony Evers is pushing back against lame-duck laws that limited his powers and the powers of attorney general Josh Kaul.  Evers announced yesterday that he is seeking to restore the attorney general’s ability to settle and withdraw from lawsuits without the Legislature’s approval.  The move would also undo changes to the state’s voter ID law,  allowing students to use university or technical college-issued voter IDs. 

Governor Evers is pushing a provision of his new budget that would allow those in the country illegally to qualify for driver’s Licenses and ID cards.  The Democratic governor announced the measure hours before he delivered his two-year spending plan to the Legislature.  Republicans have opposed the idea strongly in the past, but have not released their current reaction to the proposal.
