Legislative Updates

March 2024 - Current Legislative Update: 
This month, the Wisconsin legislature adjourned the 2023-24 legislative session. The Assembly adjourned several weeks ago in February and the Senate's last day was Tuesday, March 12. On February 19, Gov. Evers signed into law his own redistricting proposal (now 2023 Wisconsin Act 94) after the Republican-controlled Wisconsin Legislature adopted it. Under Gov. Evers’ maps, Senate Republicans appear likely to maintain a majority after the 2024 elections, though their margin is certain to shrink and Democrats will have the advantage in the 2026 election. WPRA has been monitoring several bills closely this session that have now passed both houses and are headed to the Governor for his review.
