GOVERNMENT AND POLITICAL ROUNDUP: No special session to pass voter ID bill, says Gov. Walker
MADISON -- Governor Scott Walker now says he will not call the Legislature into a special session to make voters show photo I-D's by the time he stands for re-election in November. The Republican Walker said earlier he would call the session if the courts throw out his party's I-D law from 2011 -- which Federal Judge Lynn Adelman did this week. Walker says it's pretty clear that Adelman objects to the principle of the mandate, so it's best to try and appeal that decision.
