The legislative lame duck session dominated the news last week. The Republican-controlled legislature passed a sweeping package of bills designed to weaken the powers of Democratic Gov.-elect Tony Evers and incoming Attorney General Josh Kaul. 

Now, many eyes are on Republican Gov. Walker to see if he'll sign the measures. Walker is being pressured by people on both sides of the aisle, not to sign the legislation and to think about his legacy.

In this week's "Capitol Notes" conversation, WUWM's Marti Mikkelson asked JR Ross of to provide insight into what Walker is thinking right now and what factors he's weighing in making his decision.    

Marti was a reporter with WUWM from 1999 to 2021.
