Republicans plan lame-duck power grab ‘denying the will of voters’ just weeks before Democrats take controlWisconsin Republicans are attempting a dramatic re-shifting of power in the state that would undermine the incoming Democratic administration even before they even start their first day. A slew of bills were planned to be voted on in the Republican-controlled state legislature on Tuesday, where they were expected to pass and be sent on to Republican Governor Scott Walker’s desk just weeks before he leaves office. The bills would limit the powers of the incoming Democrats in what opponents have described as a blatant last minute power grab that would effectively invalidate the will of the people.
