From a blog post by Patrick Marley in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:

Madison -- Assembly Speaker Mike Sheridan (D-Janesville) said Thursday he expected bills would be taken up in next year's legislative session to curb global warming, create regional transit authorities and reform how elections are run.

The three bills were among those that didn't pass in the legislative session that ended last week.

"I believe it will come back and it may come back in a different version," Sheridan said of the global warming bill.

Sheridan said he thought Democrats had good prospects for maintaining control of the Assembly. They took hold of the house for the first time in 14 years after the November 2008 election.
