(Madison, WI)  —  Republican members of the Legislature’s Joint Finance Committee say they should have a final version of a plan to spend the state’s opioid settlement money soon.  Co-chair Mark Born appeared on W-K-O-W/T-V’s “Capitol City Sunday.”  Born says lawmakers are working on the plan right now.  He expects it will be finalized “in the next couple of weeks.”  The budget committee didn’t approve the plan submitted by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, but members also didn’t specify what they objected to.  Democrats have pushed for the release of six-million dollars to cover things like Narcan and fentanyl test strips.
