MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Democratic Gov. Tony Evers plans to sit down with legislative Republicans in an unusual joint meeting with lawmakers from both the Assembly and Senate.
Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Vos said Thursday that the joint caucus will take place Tuesday. He says he expects it to begin as a private meeting so lawmakers can have a “real conversation” with Evers about their priorities.
The meeting comes after Assembly Republicans sent Evers a letter outlining areas where they thought they could work together.
Evers’ spokeswoman Melissa Baldauff says “actions speak louder than words” and the governor hopes Assembly Republicans will work with him to make progress on the identified issues.
Vos cited cutting income taxes, reducing transportation debt and expanding internet access as some areas where they can work together.
