MacIver News Service | June 21, 2013

[Madison, Wisc…] Senate Democrats put up a strong fight against the state budget on Thursday, unlike their colleagues in the Assembly, but failed to adopt any of their amendments and only found one Republican, Sen. Dale Schultz (R-Richland Center), to vote in opposition. The budget passed 17-16 and now heads to Governor Scott Walker’s desk for any vetoes and his signature.
