Wisconsin Republicans Move on Other Controversial Bills

While Democratic senators in Wisconsin continue their "quorum break," the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that Republican lawmakers have begun to increase the pressure for Democrats to return by voting on controversial non-spending bills that require a smaller quorum.

"With 14 Democrats remaining in Illinois and continuing to boycott the Senate, Republicans easily passed a bill repealing a requirement that law enforcement collect data on the race of all drivers they stop. Republican leaders also scheduled a vote for Thursday on a bill to require people to show photo ID to vote."
