In Wisconsin, Opportunity Knocks for a Dream Agenda

With Wisconsin's Democratic State Senators on the lam, Professor Ann Althouse of the University of Wisconsin Law School speculates about what Republicans in Madison might want to accomplish, "... that will be especially convenient to do without Democrats around to pester them".

The super-quorum requirement needing at least one Democratic member applies only to money bills.   A simple majority quorum suffices for everything else.

Althouse suggests "Concealed carry, voter ID, race-blind admissions in the University of Wisconsin system..."

Wow.   Dreams really can come true.   When Democratic legislators go on strike, wondrous good things can happen!

Here's hoping the Wisconsin State Senators still on the job seize the moment.
