Thank goodness that it looks like there is a valiant cohort of senators, including my own, who are trying to make this budget more conservative.
Spokespersons for Sens. Stephen Nass, R-Whitewater, and Duey Stroebel, R-Saukville, also confirmed they are not yet “yes” votes.
Nass spokesman Mike Mikalsen said the senator wants to see a full repeal of the state’s prevailing wage requirement take effect Jan. 1. Under the Joint Finance Committee budget, that repeal would take effect in September 2018.
Fitzgerald said he hopes to marshal the Senate votes to pass the budget this Friday.
