Vos Wants End To Late Assembly Sessions; What Happened To Walker's Pledge?

Presumptive Assembly leader Robin Vos, (R-Rochester), wants an end to all-nighters.

Say - - why didn't Vos and the rest of the GOP follow through on this 2010 campaign pledge from Scott Walker:

" And I would make it, by statute, that the Legislature can't vote on anything after 10 at night or before 9 in the morning," Walker said. "They did things this last (budget) at 2 and 3 o'clock in the morning. As I tell my staff, nothing good happens after midnight. But they did it on purpose because not only do they not want average persons to know, they don't want reporters with deadlines to know - after 10 you miss the nightly TV news and you're not in print for the daily newspapers. They push it back on a Saturday, hoping people won't read about things like that"
