Voter ID ruling could lead to special session for lawmakers

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- A federal court ruling striking down Wisconsin's voter ID law could lead to lawmakers returning for a special session.

Governor Scott Walker said last month he would call lawmakers into special session if the courts ruled against the law.

Walker signed the law in 2011 and was only in effect for a 2012 primary before being struck down by a Dane County judge.

Republican legislative leaders say they would support a special session to pass a law that could go into effect for the November elections.
