It’s 18 days past the deadline for Wisconsin’s new state budget, but the Senate G-O-P says they might have a plan. That plan involves borrowing money to pay for roads and eliminating the personal property tax.
It’s unclear though, even to Senate leadership, if that proposal is suitable to the Assembly. Senate Majority leader Scott Fitzgerald says it meets the governor’s criteria for increasing funding for K12 schools, as well as not implementing a gas tax to pay for transportation projects.
Fitzgerald says now the ball’s in the Assembly’s court.
