WI Senate won't take up injunctions bill in June


MADISON (WKOW) – The state Assembly is scheduled to vote Thursday on a bill that would allow attorneys to block court orders nullifying state laws.

The bill would allow an attorney to file an appeal within 10 days of a judge's order blocking a state law.

The bill's prospects in the Senate are unclear. A Spokeswoman for Republican Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald says senators are focused on the state budget and won't consider the bill before the Legislature takes its summer recess at the end of June.  She says Republican Senate Leaders may consider the proposal this fall.
