Wisconsin: Senate bill looks to add malfeasance standard to recall
Senate Bill 114 (introduced by Republican Senator Sheila Harsdorf, who survived a recall vote), would add the judicial recall or malfeasance standard to the recall. The bill passed the Assembly last year, but failed in the Senate. Since this is a Constitutional Amendment, the bill actually has to pass both houses in two successive sessions and then be approved by voters in a state-wide vote.
