The exodus in the Wisconsin Senate continued Tuesday with one of its most conservative members announcing he will not seek reelection, bringing to at least seven the number of incumbents who will not be returning next year.
Wisconsin Republicans continued their push on Tuesday to weaken Gov. Tony Evers' powers, holding a hearing on a constitutional amendment prohibiting him from using his veto pen to increase spending.
Wisconsin Republicans want to rewrite the state constitution to prohibit the governor from using his veto pen to increase spending without legislative approval, marking another skirmish in the GOP's battle to diminish Gov. Tony Evers' powers.
Opposition from a pair of conservative Wisconsin state senators to the Republican-written state budget is putting GOP leaders in a tough spot as they try to round up enough votes to pass the two-year spending plan next week.

General acceptance of roundabouts is likely to increase in time but the safety benefits of them might not, at least not without some public education.
