MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin's fall legislative session will be getting off to a slow start.
Republicans who control both the Senate and Assembly are still looking for consensus on major issues like toughening drunken driving laws and imposing new reporting requirements on public and choice schools.
The Assembly canceled its meeting days in September, in part because of the disruption caused by the resignation of Majority Leader Scott Suder, but also because so much remains up in the air.
The Senate plans to be in session only on Sept. 17, when it could act to restrict public access to the proposed iron ore mine site in northern Wisconsin and create a new crossbow hunting season.
Other major issues will have to wait until later in the fall.
