MADISON, Wis. — The Wisconsin Assembly plans to vote on a $250 million income tax cut and allowing bars to stay open until 4 a.m. during the Democratic National Convention.

The bills are among dozens the Assembly is taking up Thursday, its last planned session day of the year. Lawmakers are making a mad dash to the finish of the session, giving final approval to bills that already passed the Senate or making proposals available for the other chamber to vote on next month.

Anything passed by the GOP controlled Legislature must be signed by Democratic Gov. Tony Evers before becoming law.
