WAUSAU – The Wisconsin Legislature passed a flurry of new proposals in recent weeks, addressing issues that range from paid family leave to unemployment, voting rights and education. Many of those bills could be headed for a veto, but others could have widespread impacts on Wisconsin residents. 

At 10 a.m. today, March 4, Wisconsin Public Radio’s “Route 51” host Shereen Siewert welcomes State Rep. Scott Krug, R-Nekoosa, and State Rep. Jodi Emerson, D-Eau Claire, for a discussion on upcoming legislative decisions and what they could mean for the people, families and businesses of Wisconsin.

Emerson and Krug will discuss legislation they’re working on and will offer their reaction to battles over voting rights, the Natural Resources Board conflict and more. Listeners are encouraged to call in or email questions to ideas@wpr.org
