Senate Adjourns
The Senate adjourned on March 15.  Neither it nor the Assembly is expected to return before the regular session officially closes on May 18, which is the last day for reviewing any potential vetoes made by Governor Walker.  All bills that have not passed both houses die at the end of session.  The Capitol Update will provide a session summary once all actions are concluded.  Between now and then, the Capitol Update will appear less frequently.
