MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Thursday's final session of the state Assembly includes votes on a bill that would make chemotherapy drugs more affordable for cancer patients.

The bill quickly passed the Senate earlier this week and Governor Scott Walker has said he would sign that version into law.

However, Assembly Republicans are talking about making changes before voting on the bill, which could put it at risk.

Thursday is the Assembly's last planned day in session and the bill must pass both chambers in the same form.
