Assembly Education Plan Gets No Love From Wisconsin Senate

Leaders of the Wisconsin Assembly say their education plan puts more money into classrooms, while cutting property taxes, but senators don't like it.

Republicans in the Senate quickly rejected the plan. That is said to be a clear sign that work on the state budget is stalled, even though Republicans have complete control of the state government. Assembly Speaker Robin Vos says he's ready to negotiate, but Senate Republicans are standing firm. Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald of Juneau says his caucus will stick with the budget proposed by Governor Scott Walker.
