Recalling the governor and others from office in Wisconsin would be more difficult under measures the state Assembly plans to vote on Thursday.
The recall measures are among several the Assembly plans to pass on its final day in session that make changes to state election law.
Republicans also plan to pass a new photo identification requirement for voters at the polls as the current law remains on hold.
Republicans wants to prohibit voters from recalling state and local officeholders unless they've been charged with a felony or an ethics violation.
Wisconsin is one of 18 states that allows for recalls of state elected officials. Of those, only seven limit the reasons for recall to malfeasance in office.
