DODGEVILLE (WKOW)-- State Senator Dale Schultz says he has not changed his position on the budget reform bill.
The Republican says he is still hoping for a compromise.
Schultz hosted a community forum at the High School in Dodgeville Monday night and it was a packed house.
He told constituents, and the media, that he is open to all ideas and is still undecided on how he will vote on the bill.
"Well I have not decided how I am going to vote," said Senator Dale Schultz. "My position remains essentially the same and that is that I have offered one compromise, I'm not suggesting there aren't other ideas that are out there."
Schultz floated an amendment that would restore collective bargaining rights in two years.
There are 19 republicans in the 33 member senate.
They need 17 votes to pass the budget repair bill.
