Democrats take control of state Legislature today
Wisconsin legislators will be sworn in today, as Democrats take control of both houses for the first time in 14 years. The same party also has the governor's office.
For the first time in 22 years, one party has control of both the legislative and executive branches. That means Democrats can get virtually anything they want - anything they can afford, that is.
The next state budget is expected to have a deficit of $5.4 billion.
