GOP power play in Michigan must 
go through pragmatic Snyder



















LANSING, Mich. - Michigan Republicans determined to dilute the authority of newly elected Democrats could see the power play thwarted by a moderate GOP governor, who is not certain to go along with the Legislature like Wisconsin's more partisan Gov. Scott Walker. Term-limited Rick Snyder is not tipping his hand on whether he will sign the legislation if it is sent to him in the final days of a frantic lame-duck session. In contrast, Walker let it be known early in the Wisconsin process that he was likely to be on board with Republican lawmakers there.
Bucks hold on late for 107-104 
win over Pistons
DETROIT — Giannis Antetokounmpo had 32 points and 12 rebounds, and the Milwaukee Bucks held on for a 107-104 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Monday night when Blake Griffin missed a last-second 3-pointer.

Whitewater chancellor quits after husband banned from campus Farm Bill awaits Trump’s signature
MADISON - University of Wisconsin-Whitewater Chancellor Beverly Kopper announced Monday that she will resign from her leadership role at the end of the year, six months after her husband was banned from campus amid sexual harassment complaints from several women. Kopper sent a campus-wide email announcing that her last day on the job will be Dec. 31. She offered no explanation.

Wisconsin's early voting limit challenged in federal court Health insurance on demand? 
Some are betting on it
MADISON - The fight over restricting early voting in Wisconsin returned to federal court Monday, three days after Gov. Scott Walker signed into law a new limit passed during a lame-duck legislative session. A coalition of liberal groups, with the support of former Democratic U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, asked a federal judge to block implementation of the early voting restrictions. People with health insurance often pay for coverage they never use. A startup wants to shake that up. It's a radical idea: On-demand insurance that lets customers buy some of their coverage only if and when they need it, similar to how TV viewers might rent a new release from Amazon instead of paying every month for a pricey cable package they rarely use.
