11-15-13 constitutional amendment-supreme court

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The state Assembly has passed a constitutional amendment that would end the 124-year practice of having the most senior member of the Wisconsin Supreme Court serve as chief justice. All Republicans voted for the amendment today and all Democrats opposed it. The Senate passed it earlier this week. It must clear the full Legislature again next session and clear a vote of the people before taking effect.
