Dome of State Capitol of Wisconsin in Madison.Both the State Senate and the State Assembly were on the floor yesterday dealing with lots of bills as they bring the floor-period portion of this legislative session to an end.

Assembly Speaker Robin Vos held a press conference yesterday in which he said the Assembly would have its final regular floor period next Thursday.  What he means by that is that will be the last day the Assembly votes on bills originating in the Assembly. There is a day in early March that the Assembly will meet to take action on bills that originated in the Senate and are still pending in the Assembly—or on bills that originated in the Assembly but had an amendment put on in the Senate.  But no matter how you view it, within the next month the state legislature will finish up its work on bills and then pretty much leave Madison to go back to their districts to begin campaigning for the fall election.

What does this mean?
