MADISON, (AP) -- The Wisconsin Assembly wound down its last regular session day of the year in the early morning hours.

The session ended shortly after 2 a.m. Friday was also marked by a broken deal over an anti-abortion license plate, a refusal to honor victims of the Sandy Hook shooting and a series of bills to change election law.

Many of the proposals passed during the marathon 12-hour-plus session face an uncertain future in the Senate. They also require a statewide vote in order to be added to the constitution.

Other than a special session to delay a health insurance enrollment deadline, the Legislature will not be back in session again until January.
