MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The Wisconsin Assembly has left two high-profile bills off its last floor agenda of the two-year session.

The Assembly’s last day is set for Thursday. Republicans on the Assembly’s rule committee finalized the last agenda on Tuesday, packing the calendar with nearly 70 bills items. Missing from the list are bills that would exempt sand mines from new ordinances and rewrite public schools’ Common Core academic standards.

The Senate’s last day is April 1. That means that chamber would have one day to approve any bills that emerge from the Assembly on Thursday and send them on to the governor.

It’s unclear what might become of legislation that doesn’t get out of the Assembly on Thursday. Speaker Robin Vos says he doesn’t intend to reconvene but hasn’t ruled it out.
