Vos Open To Legislation To Fight Covid-19

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Deaths from the coronavirus are nearing 1,900 in Wisconsin, as an outbreak on the University of Wisconsin football team caused it to cancel an upcoming game and a new poll showed continued concerns about the virus heading into next week’s election.

Meanwhile, as the approval rating for the Republican-controlled Legislature plummets and Election Day nears, Assembly Speaker Robin Vos said he would be open to passing a second coronavirus aid package.

Wisconsin hit record highs for new cases, deaths and hospitalizations on Tuesday.

The numbers were high again Wednesday but short of new records.
