Senator: Republicans have votes for budget

The budget passed 19-14 after reports Thursday said the Senate did not have enough support from the GOP.

The bill passed 64-31, with all but two Republicans voting for the bill and being joined by Democratic Reps.

Walker said Wednesday that the budget would fulfill his goal of increasing funding for K-12 schools without increasing property taxes.

"We don't even know if the Senate can pass this budget, it's so bad", Democratic Minority Leader Peter Barca said. Prevailing wage requirements, meanwhile, lay out a minimum wage for workers on state construction projects.

Vos threatened Thursday that his chamber would not consider the budget again if the Senate made changes to it. The Senate must pass an identical document before it can go to Gov. Scott Walker's desk.

"Nothing's changed with me", he said as debate began Friday. They've also criticized it for lacking a long-term plan for roads projects, an omission that will further delay road work around the state and cause another $400 million to be borrowed for public-works projects.

Democrats spoke out Wednesday before the Assembly was to vote on the $76 billion spending plan.

The vote followed more than eight hours of Democrats proposing 17 amendments to the plan, dealing with issues ranging from campaign finance reform to lead pipe replacement programs. It's also a fiscally responsible budget that ends in a positive balance and maintains the largest rainy day fund in state history.

He was removed from office in a coup led by former head of the armed forces and current President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi. He came to power after Egypt's long-time president Hosni Mubarak was toppled in an uprising in 2011.

Kapenga said he spoke on the phone with Walker, who is in South Korea on a trade mission, to finalize the deal.

Walker also says he plans to veto $1 million for renovations in the state Capitol basement. As it's now written in the budget, that repeal would take effect in September 2018.

They say Foxconn offers a once-in-a-generation chance to create thousands of jobs and transform the state's tech and manufacturing sectors.

Both ideas have been floated by Republican senators as necessary changes to secure their votes.

"Once we vote for the budget today, we are done with the budget process", Vos said. Republican Assembly Majority Leader Jim Steineke blasted the Senate holdouts on Twitter saying, "Let me be as clear as I can". That would set up a possible final vote in the Senate this week or early next.

The senators on Friday say that was part of a series of vetoes Walker promised to make to the budget to win their support.

"Stop asking your hardworking constituents ... to line the pockets of billionaires", said Rep. Amanda Stuck, a Democrat.
