Senate not scheduled to take up abortion bills

Nov. 8, 2013
 

MADISON — Republicans who control the Wisconsin state Senate are not taking up a pair of anti-abortion bills next week after a Democratic senator promised “all out hell” if they did.

The tentative agenda for Tuesday’s Senate session does not include the bills. A spokesman for Republican Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald said Friday the bills will not come up on Tuesday but may next year.

Fitzgerald spokesman Dan Romportl says Republicans wanted to end the year on a non-controversial note. Tuesday is the Senate’s last day in session this year.

Democratic Sen. Jon Erpenbach promised Thursday that if the bills were debated, there would be “all out hell” in opposition. He was most displeased with one that would prohibit public workers’ health insurance plans from covering abortions.
