-- GOP lawmakers are proposing new limits on in-person absentee voting and stripping the guv of the power to appoint the head of the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp. in a series of changes up for debate in a lame-duck session. 

Still, it wasn't clear all of the provisions in the bill drafts will make the final cut once Republicans meet next week in extraordinary session. For example, the bills include a provision that would move the 2020 presidential primary off the April ballot, but there is a split between the Assembly and Senate GOP caucuses on the provision.
