Attention switches to the Wisconsin Senate after the Assembly gave its approval Tuesday to the state’s $87 billion budget. Republican legislative leaders are hoping to get the two-year spending plan to the governor by Thursday. Assembly Speaker Robin Vos says responsible budgeting has led to a gigantic surplus that enabled what he calls a “once-in-a-generation” tax cut for Wisconsin taxpayers. The measure passed by the Assembly moves on to the Senate today (Wednesday). The Joint Finance Committee has cut almost 400 items that were part of the initial budget submitted by Governor Tony Evers.
