MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A pair of Republican-backed bills that would legalize the carrying of concealed weapons in Wisconsin are being circulated in the Legislature.

The bills made public Wednesday are tentatively scheduled to be the subject of public hearings in Wausau and Madison on May 12.

Republican leaders of both the Senate and the Assembly told The Associated Press on Wednesday that they do not anticipate voting on the measures this month.

Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald says he is leaving it up to the sponsors of the bills, Sen. Pam Galloway of Wausau and Rep. Jeff Mursau of Crivitz, to come up with an agreement first.

Wisconsin and Illinois are the only two states without a concealed carry law. The proposal passed twice before but was vetoed by then-Gov. Jim Doyle.
