Sturgeon Bay Republican Rep. Joel Kitchens says the Wisconsin Legislature is concerned more with protecting some of Governor Scott Walker’s reforms than taking power away from his replacement.  According to the Associated Press, Republican lawmakers discussed last week ways to limit Governor-elect Tony Evers’ authority to carry out passed bills and make changes to the state’s Foxconn deal and voter identification law. Rep. Kitchens says the governor’s powers are laid out in the state’s constitution and believes the topic has been overblown.

 

 

Newly elected state senator for District 1 and current Representative Andre Jacque declined comment until he has more information. DoorCountyDailyNews.com will reach out to area Democrats for their thoughts on the possible legislation.
