Supreme Court to meet with state lawmakers

MADISON, Wis. -

Members of the Wisconsin Supreme Court are scheduled to meet with state lawmakers at a joint meeting of legislative committees that deal with the judiciary.

The meeting Tuesday typically happens every two years so new members of the committee get a chance to talk with the seven justices.

The Senate and Assembly committees plan to discuss issues related to the court system and the Legislature. No public testimony is being taken.

One member of the state Supreme Court is well-versed in ways of the Legislature. Justice David Prosser is a former Republican speaker of the state Assembly.

The meeting this year comes in the middle of a campaign by Justice Pat Roggensack as she looks to win a second 10-year term on the state's highest court.
