After a dramatic showdown within the Republican majority in the state Senate, Wisconsin's $76 billion budget is finally on its way to the governor's desk more than two months late. Wisconsin competed with several other states to land the massive Foxconn factory which will make liquid crystal display panels. A group of Senate Republicans want to speed up repeal of the prevailing wage, block spending on University of Wisconsin System diversity training and expand the statewide voucher school program. The delay was the result of leaders trying convince enough GOP members to vote for the plan, which is more than two months overdue.

- The Wisconsin Assembly on Thursday sent Gov. Scott Walker a multibillion-dollar subsidy package for a Taiwanese company, putting within reach the governor's bid to place a massive flat-screen plant in the state. Democratic Reps. Peter Barca and Tod Ohnstad of Kenosha and Cory Mason of Racine joined Republicans in voting for the proposal again, just as they had when the Assembly passed an earlier version of the bill in August.
Assembly Democrats, speaking before the session, said the budget shows Republicans' priorities by "rigging" the state's economy to favor the wealthy. Vos likened the Senate GOP demands for changes to a "ransom note" and said the Assembly would not be "held hostage".
Assembly Speaker Robin Vos says the Assembly will not return to act on the budget after it passes it Wednesday.
Walker said Wednesday that the budget would fulfill his goal of increasing funding for K-12 schools without increasing property taxes.
