If the Senate passes the budget without any changes, it will go to Gov. Scott Walker for his signature.
The Assembly passed the budget 57-39 Wednesday evening after 11 hours of debate. The budget was due July 1 but Republicans spent the summer quarreling among themselves over how to pay for roads before finally arriving at a plan to delay projects, borrow $400 million more and increase registration fees for hybrid and electric vehicles by $100. Walker also said he would support finding more savings at the Department of Transportation to win votes for the budget. One would make repeal of the prevailing wage for state construction projects effective immediately. Assembly Republicans made minor technical changes to the budget but didn't address any of the Senate Republican demands.
Right now, Governor Scott Walker is on a trade mission in Japan and South Korea and he says he's met with a number of companies looking to invest in Wisconsin.
Chris Kapenga, R-Delafield, Duey Stroebel, R-Saukville, and Steven Nass, R-Whitewater, reached a deal with Walker where the Walker will strike a series of provisions in the bill. Spending continued at current levels during the impasse.
"I'm still confident we'll have a budget by the end of the summer", Walker said.
The senators say Walker also plans to veto the budget to allow school districts to conduct referendum votes only on regularly scheduled primary and general election days.
High cost transportation aid is in that budget.
