Wisconsin Budget Bill Set to Come Before Assembly

Wisconsin legislators’ plan to balance the state’s budget is largely written and is set to come before the Assembly Wednesday, June 15. GOP lawmakers and Governor Scott Walker agree on the outlines of the bill that will close a $3 billion deficit in the state’s main account over the next two years by holding the line on spending and cutting taxes to spur economic growth.

The collective bargaining changes will not be added into the budget given the recent Supreme Court decision allowing the collective bargaining law to go into effect.
