Gov. Evers Pitches Vote On New Abortion Law

Governor Evers wants lawmakers to change the state constitution to allow the people to vote on a new abortion law. 

The governor yesterday called a special session for early next month to try and get lawmakers to approve a ballot initiative process.  That would allow voters to approve binding resolutions that would create new laws.  The governor says a new abortion law should be the first.  Republican leaders at the Capitol say the governor’s proposal is nothing more than a political stunt. 

Senate Majority Leader Devin LeMahieu said the state’s abortion law hasn’t changed, and neither has the support for it.  He says there’s nothing for lawmakers to vote on.
