MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Election officials in battleground Wisconsin hope to revive plans for a new division intended to work with the public and deal with an onslaught of records requests and complaints. The Legislature’s Republican-controlled budget-writing committee killed the plan last Tuesday along with more than 500 proposals from Democratic Gov. Tony Evers. Meagan Wolfe, the state’s top elections official, says the plan is critical to rebuilding confidence in elections. But lawmakers who could bring the plan back as a bill say they’d rather give money to local election officials as grants than fund more staff for the statewide agency.
