Top Republicans at the Wisconsin Capitol are changing their state budget plans to keep their own party members from voting ‘No.’
Assembly Speaker Robin Vos and Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald yesterday said they expect to make some tweaks to the 40-billion-dollar-a-year state budget that they want to send to the governor. Two Republicans, state Senators Steve Nass and David Craig, have already said they won’t vote for the budget because it spends too much.
Two other Republicans, Duey Stroebel and Chris Kapenga, are either reluctant to vote or silent about the spending plan. If all four vote ‘No,’ the Republican spending plan wouldn’t pass.
