Local legislator wants to shine a light on last minute bills

A local legislator is pushing for fewer last minute session decisions. Mark Spreitzer of Beloit wants to cut down on the practice of a large number of bills being introduced at the end of floor sessions.  The Democrat has offered a bill limiting the percentage of committees that can meet in a day, and the number of bills that can be considered on the floor in a given day.  Spreitzer says he’d like to avoid what happened last year in February when the State Assembly considered 110 bills in a single day, and then passed 88 bills two days later, before adjourning for the year.
