MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Leaders of the state Assembly are scheduled to meet to discuss changing legislative rules that cover everything from the ability of the minority party to prolong debate to whether visitors in the gallery can take pictures.
Details of the changes were expected to be released Tuesday after the leadership meeting.
Assembly Speaker Robin Vos has repeatedly said he wants to find ways to stop the Assembly going deep into the night, sometimes until the sun rises, debating bills.
Delaying debate or votes on a bill is frequently a tactic used by the minority party. Any changes to rules that would limit debate are likely to be met with fierce opposition from Democrats.
Assembly Democratic Minority Leader Peter Barca said Monday he would oppose any changes that would limit debate.
