MADISON, Wis. - Gov. Scott Walker says he would call lawmakers into special session to modify Wisconsin's voter photo identification requirements to conform to court rulings.

Republicans who control the Legislature passed the voter ID requirements in 2011 but a pair of Dane County judges struck the mandate down in separate lawsuits. The Wisconsin Supreme Court is currently considering both challenges but it's unclear when the justices might rule. A federal judge in Milwaukee is also weighing the mandate in two more lawsuits.

The regulator legislative session ends April 1.
