Manitowoc Herald-Times-Reporter Editorial Board Vocabulary Lesson: Bipartisan, Bicameral

Merriam-Webster (highlights added)

Our view: Jacque's fake ID bill has merit.  (Manitowoc Herald Times Reporter, 4/23/2013)

Excerpt [with emphasis added]:  Despite the opposition, it appears that the measure has bipartisan support in the Legislature, with Sen. Rick Gudex, R-Fond du Lac, sponsoring a companion bill in the state Senate.

The bill has no Democratic sponsors, i.e., there is no involvement of the members of two parties here.  It does, however, have Republican sponsors from both the Assembly and Senate, which, it appears, gives the measure bicameral support.
