Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald: "I don't know where we're at" on state budget

MADISON — Republican Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald says he does not think the Legislature is any closer to reaching a deal to break an impasse on the state budget.

Fitzgerald said Tuesday that he has not spoken with Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Vos about unresolved budget issues since last week. Fitzgerald says, "I don't know where we're at."

Fitzgerald says it's unrealistic not to do any of the $1.3 billion in borrowing for roads, even though Gov. Scott Walker said Friday he would sign a budget that does that. Fitzgerald says talks continue over how much to reduce borrowing.

Fitzgerald says Senate Republicans are no closer to agreeing on what changes to make to the prevailing wage law, saying they are "all over the place."
