The measure up for a vote Thursday is among several that opponents say ignore voters after they swept Democrats into the governor, attorney general and secretary of state offices.
The measure would prevent incoming Democratic Gov. -elect Tony Evers from withdrawing a federal waiver request to implement the work requirement for able-bodied adults younger than 50.
"The big takeaway from the Wisconsin legislature's sabotage of its voters' mandate, and the similar action in North Carolina in 2016, closely following Republicans' federal proceduralist approach to matters like the Supreme Court and Obamacare, is that this is the new normal", Magarian said. That decision - whether to join or withdraw from this kind of litigation - has been one for the attorney general and governor.

Republicans in both MI and Wisconsin will see eight years of total control of state government end in January, when Democrats take over the governor's mansions and other top executive posts.

"You're here because you don't want to give up power", Democratic Assembly Minority Leader Gordon Hintz said as debate concluded in that chamber. The Assembly approved it on a 56-27 vote about two hours later, with a single Republican defecting.

The bill would limit the governor's ability to put in place administrative rules that enact laws and give the Legislature the power to control appointees to the board that runs the state economic development agency until September 1.
The changes would also weaken the governor's ability to put in place rules that enact laws.
The bill is part of a package of Republican lame-duck legislation created to weaken Evers and incoming Democratic Attorney General-elect Josh Kaul.
