MADISON (WKOW) -- The
Legislature's budget committee is ready to vote on major pieces of Gov. Scott Walker's
budget on Tuesday.
Major pieces to be voted
on in clued income tax cuts, private school voucher expansions, public
education funding and Medicaid.
Walker and Republican
legislative leaders have been working in secret to make deals that will get the
budget through both the Senate and Assembly.
Republicans have a majority in both houses.
However, Democrats are
calling on Republicans to reject the voucher expansion and tax cut plans in
order to invest more money in public schools.
Democrats also want
Republicans to accept a federally funded Medicaid expansion, something Walker has
rejected and has said he expects to be passed by the Legislature.
