NBC News: “Outgoing Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a Republican, signed into law a sweeping set of bills on Friday passed by the lame-duck GOP-controlled legislature to limit the powers of the incoming Democratic administration.

“‘It flies in the face of the people of Wisconsin wanting people to have bipartisan solutions, wanting to have less rancor, wanting to have less divide and conquer and what we have is a special session … where just the opposite happened,’ [Governor-elect Tony] Evers said.”

The legislation weakens the authority of the incoming Democratic governor and attorney general, and will restrict early voting.”
