Clean energy, transit bills remain unresolved

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — With just one day left in the legislative session to pass bills this year, major pieces of legislation remain undone and in serious jeopardy.

The state Assembly failed to take action on proposals addressing clean energy requirements and creating a regional transit unit in southeastern Wisconsin to pay for commuter rail and bus service.

The Assembly met all night Tuesday into early Wednesday morning but could not resolve those issues.

It also did not take up a sweeping elections reform bill that would allow voters to register online.

Thursday is the last day of the session.

  1. Now what? Are we to hear politicians continue talking incessantly about this for the next thirty years while other states have long since gotten off top dead center? The public wants action.
