No private or local bill which may be passed by the legislature shall embrace more than one subject, and that shall be expressed in the title.
I don't think what the GOP is proposing would be considered a private or local bill.
So, Wisconsin has that single subject rule in the State Constitution, but it applies only to "private or local" bills. Strange, and something to consider for what should be a total reform of the Legislative Branch in upcoming years. Other states forbid private and local bills altogether. Bills have to be constructed to apply generally.
I moved to Wisconsin in 2001, just before the uproar started over the corruption in the Legislature was hitting the fan. I thought then that the Legislative Branch needed some modernization, but the arrogance with which the current crew of miscreants operates makes me think that abolishing the entire branch might be in order.
Well, that won't happen, but the system needs more than Democrats in charge. It needs a barbed wire enema, which will require more than an election or two to straighten things out.
