3-24-14 wi legislature

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Assembly Republicans' decision to wrap up their two-year session has left a number of high-profile bills in limbo.  The Assembly wrapped up its last floor day early Friday. The Senate is expected to return for one more floor session on April 1 before lawmakers head out on the campaign trail. That means anything the Assembly didn't pass or has sent to the Senate and doesn't get a vote is probably dead.  A spokeswoman for Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald says bills that would establish a 70 mph speed limit and purge cases from the state's online court records database are probably dead. But Assembly-approved bills that would require outside investigators handle deaths involving police officers, establish regional drug centers and create short-term sanctions for heroin addicts likely will get votes.
