The Wisconsin Assembly plans to vote Thursday on ending the state’s mask mandate issued by Gov. Tony Evers, a move that will send the question back to the state Senate, which could vote later this month to repeal the order.
The Assembly delayed a vote last week amid concerns that repealing the Democratic governor’s emergency order would result in Wisconsin losing about $50 million a month in federal money.
Assembly Speaker Robin Vos says the Assembly will pass a fix for that problem and a resolution repealing the mask mandate. That will require the Senate to vote again.
