WISCONSIN — The Wisconsin State Assembly will hold a session Tuesday to discuss a coronavirus response bill.

According to Speaker Robin Vos and Majority Leader Jim Steineke, Tuesday's session will involve a vote on the bill.

The bill would eliminate the one-week hold on unemployment benefits and would allow the state to get more money from the federal government.

"While tomorrow's extraordinary session will certainly be a first, we anticipate a day of bipartisan action to help hard-working Wisconsin families and businesses," wrote Vos and Steineke in a statement.

The Wisconsin State Assembly session will take place at 1 p.m. Tuesday.
