MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Bills to rewrite Common Core academic standards and limit regulations on sand mining in Wisconsin are not scheduled for votes in the state Assembly before it adjourns for the year.

The Assembly also did not schedule a vote on a bill to make cancer drugs in pill form more affordable or a measure limiting the state's ability to regulate high capacity wells.

They were not included in the tentative agenda for Thursday's final planned meeting day that was released on Monday. That agenda will be finalized on Tuesday and proposals could be added or dropped then.

The Assembly was to wrap up its work Thursday with the Senate planning to meet Tuesday and April 1.

Bills that don't clear both chambers in identical form are dead for the year.
