State Legislators Sworn in Monday
Wisconsin’s next legislative session will get under way Monday morning.
New Democratic Assembly members, including Katrina Shankland of Stevens Point, will be sworn in Monday morning.
The ceremony will be followed by a reception at the state historical museum.
The state Senate will hold a lunch-time reception followed by an inauguration ceremony that will run simultaneously with the Assembly event. Each new senator will receive a lapel pin.
Republicans now carry a majority in both houses- 59-39 in the Assembly and 18-15 in the Senate.
The first few months of the session will likely center around of reform Wisconsin’s mining regulations and the next two-year state budget.
