Legislature ends regular 2010 session

The Assembly has adjourned, bringing the last general-business floor period of the 2009-2010 biennium to a close.

Speaker Mike Sheridan, D-Janesville, told his caucus he was proud of their accomplishments over the entire session, particularly on economic development.

"We're able to create a lot of tax credits and those tax credits and development opportunities were always the priority of the day," Sheridan said. "Every step of the way we concentrated on that."

He pointed particularly to more than $200 million in growth incentives that had tangible effects on some large state employers.

"Be proud of the work that you did here," Sheridan told his members. "We're going to be able to go home and talk about these things all through the fall."

Assembly Minority Leader Jeff Fitzgerald, R-Horicon, countered that the session was largely a wasted opportunity for lawmakers.

"I think this week was kind of the epitome," Fitzgerald said. "A lot of time spent on the floor, a lot of time sitting around, not a lot that really got accomplished."

He also said that Democrats were showing the burden of being in charge after 14 years in the minority.

"I think you got a taste of what it's like to be in the majority and how hard it is to govern," Fitzgerald said. "It's not an ideal situation to tell you the truth. You've got nobody to blame."
