MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin Republicans are trying to speed a bill through the Legislature in the final days of the session that would transfer the power to regulate factory farm siting and expansion from state officials to a new board controlled by agricultural groups.

The move comes after Democratic Gov. Tony Evers' administration angered Republicans with moves to enact tougher restrictions on such farms earlier this year.
