MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The Wisconsin Assembly’s last session day looks jammed.

The chamber’s last floor period of the two-year legislative session is set for Thursday. Republicans on the Assembly’s rules committee on Tuesday adopted an agenda crammed with nearly 70 bills and resolutions.

Chief among them are proposals that would limit in-person absentee voting; give cancer patients access to less expensive chemotherapy pills; create private school accountability requirements; give lobbyists an extra seven weeks to give lawmakers donations; and change the rules for asbestos-related lawsuits.

The Senate is expected to wrap up its work on April 1. Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, a Burlington Republican, says he’s holding open the possibility of the Assembly coming back to deal with any bills the Senate might amend and send back to the Assembly for final passage.
