Gov. Walker's budget delayed


MADISON (WKOW) -- Governor Scott Walker's budget will be delayed by one week.

Governor Walker will still deliver a budget speech next Tuesday, but he'll release the state's two year budget on March 1st.

The state Senate, minus every Democratic member, reconvened briefly to approve a resolution that grants the delay.

Senate Democrats left the state Thursday in protest over the Governor's proposal to strip collective bargaining rights from some public workers.
