After a three-week standoff, Wisconsin Senate Republicans passed a controversial bill Wednesday night that limits collective bargaining for public-sector workers.
Today, a final vote on the legislation is expected in the Assembly. Democrats in the Senate had left the state in an attempt to prevent their Republican colleagues from voting, but Republicans found a way to take a vote anyway.
We speak to one of the Democrats who had left the state — State Senator Chris Larson of Wisconsin. We also get a debrief from Dee Hall, of the Wisconsin State Journal.
