MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin’s new legislative session will begin with anger still fresh among Democrats over the Republican lame-duck session that weakened the powers of incoming Gov. Tony Evers. And with divided control for the first time in a decade, there’s fear that partisan gridlock and intra-party fighting among legislative Republicans may produce few meaningful compromises with Evers. The new legislative session begins on Jan. 7, the same day that Evers replaces Republican Gov. Scott Walker.
