Here's how Wisconsin Republicans want to strip power from incoming Democrats

During a heated debate about the sweeping plan, Democratic Assembly Minority Leader Gordon Hintz told GOP lawmakers that history would not be kind to them if they approved the bills.

The legislature says the bills were necessary to balance power between the executive and legislative branch. Republicans argue that the new body, which would be made up of three Democratic and three Republican legislators appointed by the governor, would promote bipartisan cooperation.

Gov. -elect Tony Evers said Wednesday that Republicans have overridden the will of voters who chose Democrats in last month's election.

The legislation includes a House bill that would allow the Legislature to intervene in state court cases, possibly blocking incoming Attorney General Dana Nessel.

The main bill was sent to the GOP-led House to be considered as early as next week, following a similar move to restrict the powers of incoming Democrats in neighboring Wisconsin.

Republican Governor Scott Walker has indicated he will sign the bills before leaving office at the end of December, though his office said on Thursday he was reviewing the legislation.

The vote by the Republican-controlled Wisconsin Legislature to strip power away from the incoming governor and attorney general split for the most part along predictable partisan lines.

The pre-existing conditions measure failed after all 15 Democrats in the Senate and two Republicans voted against it. That measure is awaiting a final legislative vote in the state Assembly. Do we think that has something to do with Wisconsin's participation in a multi-state lawsuit from Republicans attempting to invalidate the Affordable Care Act?

Please also veto legislation that restricts early voting. Currently, each county has the power to decide their early voting terms, and many Democrat-dominated counties have a six-week period to vote early.

A Senate bill looks to remove campaign finance oversight from the jurisdiction of the secretary of state who will be Jocelyn Benson.

The measure would prevent incoming Democratic Gov. -elect Tony Evers from withdrawing a federal waiver request to implement the work requirement for able-bodied adults younger than 50.

The changes would also weaken the governor's ability to put in place rules that enact laws.

Evers on the stump said he would disband the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation, a jobs agency that has come under intense scrutiny for its role in providing tax incentive deals to major corporations like tech manufacturing giant Foxconn.

"She's perfectly capable of figuring out who is a Democrat and who is a Republican without the help of this lame-duck Legislature".

The bill is part of a package of Republican lame-duck legislation created to weaken Evers and incoming Democratic Attorney General-elect Josh Kaul.

Wisconsin Republicans pushed through protests, internal disagreement and Democratic opposition to pass the bills after an all-night session.

Both Evers and Kaul urged Republicans not to do it and warned of lawsuits that would bring more gridlock to Wisconsin when the new administration, and the first divided government in 10 years, takes over.
