Republicans at the Wisconsin Capitol are looking to use the constitution to secure that state’s election laws.
A statehouse panel will hold a hearing tomorrow on a constitutional amendment to ensure Wisconsin continues to require voter ID. Lawmakers will also consider a constitutional amendment to prevent outside money from being spent on election operations. That stems from the Zuckerbucks issue of 2020. Republicans want to use the constitution to make sure the state’s new liberal-majority Supreme Court cannot strike down voter ID, or leave the door open to outside money in the state.
