MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Assembly Republican Speaker Robin Vos is outlining his plan for the next two-year legislative session.

Tuesday’s elections gave the GOP at least 61 seats in the chamber, with Republicans leading Democrats in two other races that are too close to call.

Vos told reporters Wednesday that he wants to start the session with a school accountability bill. A sweeping accountability proposal that included sanctions for failing schools failed to garner support last session.

He also wants to reform the state Government Accountability Board, saying he likes the idea of independent judges serving on the board but board staff have become partisan advocates, and re-writing laws governing John Doe investigations.

Vos added that he supports toll roads as a way of funding road-building projects.
