Vos: Assembly in line with governor's budget

Assembly Speaker Robin Vos said prior to session today that while his caucus is “pretty united on the governor’s budget,” larger decisions about the details of the budget bill won’t be made until after the four JFC public hearings are completed.

“The Assembly is more in line with where Gov. Walker is,” the Rochester Republican said. “I don’t want to speaker for the Senate.”

Vos and JFC Co-chair John Nygren, R-Marinette, also added that budget decisions would have to wait until details of a proposal to raise per pupil K-12 funding from GOP senators is unveiled. Both lawmakers deflected questions about the level of debt, but said there’s largely agreement on proposals to change Medicaid enrollment.

Vos also said he hopes details of a plan to reform the state’s tax structure from Rep. Dale Kooyenga, R-Brookfield, would be announced soon. And he dismissed talk of a plan to expand school choice throughout the state as a “rumor.”

The speaker added he does not get involved in primary races after Rep. Howard Marklein’s announcement that he would challenge Sen. Dale Schultz, R-Richland Center, next year. He praised Marklein, R-Spring Green, as a “fantastic member of the state Assembly” and said the party has already started talking to candidates about running to succeed him.
