WI Senate reconvenes Wednesday morning on election bills

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- The Wisconsin Senate plans to vote on bills Democrats opposed and used a procedural move to block from passing Tuesday.
The Senate was meeting Wednesday to vote on the remaining bills. They include a proposal to limit in-person absentee voting in the two weeks prior to the election and disallow it on the weekends. Another bill would allow election observers to stand as close as three feet to people registering to vote or picking up their ballot.
Democrats also delayed until Wednesday a vote on a bill allowing lobbyists to start giving campaign donations seven weeks earlier than currently allowed.
Final action was also slated to be taken on a proposal that sets a new liability limit of $300,000 for parents of drivers under age 18 who gets in accidents.
