The delegates got the debate rolling by signing off on a series of resolutions that include opposing public money for private schools in the voucher program, opposing the repeal of the prevailing wage and urging the reversal of a series of GOP priorities.
The resolutions were approved with unanimous consent.
Other resolutions include:
*reinstating the Glass-Steagall Act, which was repealed in 1999.
*investing in broadband.
*opposing drug testing for unemployment compensation and assistance programs.
*supporting applying the Social Security tax to all earned income; it now cuts off at $117,000.
*repealing the mining law Republicans pushed through in 2013.
*allowing undocumented residents to obtain a driver's license.
*repealing the voter ID law.
*supporting legislation that would require candidates to raise at least 85 percent of their campaign contributions from Wisconsin.
*and requiring free access to all C-Span channels.
We're now onto several resolutions that were broken out for separate discussion.
