Senate will consider bills on campaign donations from lobbyists, in-person absentee voting
Shawn Johnson, Wisconsin Public Radio
The state Senate will consider bills today that would provide more time for lobbyists to donate campaign funds to political candidates and less time for voters to cast in-person absentee ballots.
Right now, lobbyists have to wait until June 1 of an election year before they can personally write a check to a candidate for state, local or federal office. A plan before the Senate would bump that up to April 15.
