Budget debate heads to the floor this week

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- State lawmakers will begin debate this week on how to best shore up a $6.6 billion budget hole.

The Assembly will take up the issue on Wednesday.

The democratic-controlled Joint Finance Committee passed the current version of the budget one week ago.

Most sales and income taxes would not go up, but several fees have been added on, and those making more than $300,000 per year would see an increase in their taxes.

Republicans have criticized the tax increases and say the budget includes too many pork projects.
