MADISON (AP) -- A bipartisan band of young Wisconsin legislators has formed a group called the Wisconsin Future Caucus.

The caucus' co-chairs, Democratic Rep. Amanda Stuck and Republican Rep. Adam Neylon, announced the formation of the group during a news conference Wednesday. They said they've got about 20 lawmakers 40 years or younger on board.

Neylon said the group will serve as a bipartisan platform to discuss issues affecting future generations. He says the caucus plans to examine potential legislation dealing with self-driving cars and exempting young mothers from jury duty.

The Millennial Action Project has been working to form such caucuses across the country. The project's founder, Steven Olikara, said during the news conference that the organization has established caucuses in 18 other states as well as in Congress.
