MADISON, Wis. (AP) – Gov. Scott Walker says he is not pushing a pair of Republican-sponsored bills affecting campaign donations and spending regulations.
The proposals were introduced Monday and quickly scheduled for a hearing Wednesday before the Senate’s Elections Committee.
One would allow liberalize rules covering when lobbyists can donate to candidates for office. The other would put into law a rule that exempts political groups behind issue ads from disclosing their donors.
Walker says he has not been engaged on the bills and instead has been focused on issues related to tax relief, economic development and worker training.
Assembly Speaker Robin Vos also had no comment on the bills, saying he was still reviewing them.
