State Budget Vote Brings More Protesters to Madison, Wisc.

Tuesday, June 14, 2011

Large protests are expected in Madison today in response to an upcoming vote on the state's budget bill, which might include the now famous collective bargaining bill. So far, that bill has been tied up in the courts, says Shawn Johnson, State Capitol reporter with Wisconsin Public Radio. However, Republican lawmakers say if the collective bargaining issue isn't resolved in the courts today, they may put the measure in the budget bill. Meanwhile, there are other issues in the budget that have attracted protesters, including major cuts to the state's schools.
