MADISON (WKOW) - The state's budget committee is back on the Capitol this weekend trying to find answers to the state's $6.6 billion dollar budget gap.
Here's what the joint finance committee decided Saturday.
To allocate another $811,000 over the next two years to reimburse crime victims for lost wages, medical care and other expenses. The extra money comes from surcharges that judges impose when defendents are sentenced or placed on probation.
The committee will take the next two days off. They are trying to find ways to cut costs or raise revenue to shore up the $6.6 billion gap by the end of the month so the full legislature can look at the state budget for approval.
By law, Wisconsin must have a budget in place by July 1.
