MADISON (WKOW) -- The state Assembly adopted a Republican-introduced amendment for 27 changes to the $70 billion state budget.

One change would delay the loosening of requirements for high-capacity wells for at least a year.  Another change includes not capping a property tax credit program for disabled veterans.

Other drafted changes were dropped which included limiting public access to a mining site near Lake Superior and loosening enrollment requirements for Racine's voucher schools.

The amendment was added with a 59-36 vote.  Five Democrats voted for it and two Republicans voted against it.

It is expected that no other amendments will be adopted.
