LANSING, Mich. On both sides of Lake Michigan this month, Republican-dominated Legislatures pushed forward measures aimed at hamstringing Democrats who will take over their statehouses in January. On Wisconsin side, Gov. Scott Walker shrugged at accusations of dirty politics and partisan overreach and signed them into law. A term-limited Republican, Governor Snyder is hardly beloved by Legislature Democrats. But as the lame-duck legislative session draws to close this week, he has become their best hope to halt effort by Republican lawmakers to lock their priorities into place before Democrats take over the governor's office and other major State offices next month. With the session set to end on Thursday, Republicans have already sent legislation to Mr. Snyder that would make it much harder for executive-branch agencies to issue regulations that are stricter than federal ones. Michigan Republicans are expected to take up bills this week to strip campaign-finance regulation authority from the new Democratic secretary of State, give the Legislature unchallenged voice in lawsuits overseen by the new Democratic Attorney General, and prevent Democratic officials from forcing nonprofit political advocacy groups to disclose who bankrolls their campaigns. In State whose political traditions might be called radically moderate, George Romney and William Milliken are famous examples of Republican governors who bent over backward in search of compromises Legislature moves are unsettling to some members of both parties. Some Democrats say it is no accident that three State offices targeted by the male-dominated Legislature will all be occupied by women in January. States incoming Democratic Governor, Gretchen Whitmer, is former Senate minority leader; new Attorney General, Dana Nessel, is a Detroit lawyer and LGBTQ activist. Jocelyn Benson, associate law professor, will become secretary of State. Republican leaders in the House and Senate, who do not respond to requests for interviews, have called chamber actions politics as usual, albeit bare-knuckle. Yet even some veteran Republicans say the moves, which echo similar power plays by Republican lawmakers in Wisconsin and North Carolina, shatter the old notion that losing parties should cede power gracefully. The political DNA of this country has changed so dramatically that if youre in control, youre going to use it to utmost and beyond, said Kenneth R. Sikkema, Republican consultant who holds leadership positions in both the State Senate and House. Governor Snyder has already signed other lame-duck bills that have infuriated his critics, including two that undo increases in the minimum wage and in pay sick leave that the Legislature itself enacted this summer. Republicans have passed bills to shortcut citizen initiatives that would have place issues on the November ballot. Mr. Snyder has not tipped his hand on his views of legislation that would curb his successors ' power. People should not expect that I am just going to sign things or I am just going to veto things, he said at the end-of-term news conference last week.
