MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The state Assembly plans to meet next week for the first time since the coronavirus outbreak began in Wisconsin.

Assembly leaders notified members Friday that they plan to call a virtual extraordinary session on Tuesday morning.

It's unclear what they may take up. Republican leaders have been working on a pandemic aid bill with Democratic Gov. Tony Evers.

The governor said earlier this week that he would veto the GOP's latest proposal because it gives the Legislature's Republican-controlled budget committee carte blanche authority to cut state spending.

Assembly Majority Leader Jim Steineke tweeted those provisions have been cut.
