Assembly Speaker Robin Vos said last week he gives Democratic Gov. Tony Evers' plan to legalize marijuana, and decriminalize small amounts, a 10 percent chance of passing the Republican-controlled Legislature. Vos called the proposal a "very difficult sell" because it would decriminalize recreational marijuana. Evers plans to introduce the proposal as part of the state budget later this week, but Vos says the item will be removed. In this week's "Capitol Notes" conversation, WUWM's Marti Mikkelson asked JR Ross, of wispolitics.com, if the proposal would then be introduced as a separate bill. Ross says whether the plan is in the budget or not, it's probably not going to pass this session. While Vos has indicated backing for medical marijuana, Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald has said repeatedly that he's won't even support that part of the bill. Ross says he doesn't think any Democrats would cross over and vote with Republicans to override Evers' veto of a middle class tax cut
