Capitol Notes: Walker's Signature Proposals in Jeopardy as GOP Leaders Clash

Justin W Kern
The next few days will be pretty lively at the State Capitol

It looks like some of Gov. Walker's big initiatives in this election year, could die in the legislature after all.  That includes school safety measures and a plan to close Lincoln Hills School for Boys.  

The Senate on Tuesday is scheduled to act on Walker's plan to give $100 to families for each child under 18.  But, it's a different plan from what the Assembly passed.  So, the Assembly would have to come back into session to approve the Senate changes -- and so far, Speaker Robin Vos isn't budging.

In this week's Capitol Notes conversation, Marti Mikkelson asked JR Ross of -- might the speaker change his mind?
