Budget Views of Republican Senators

Air Date:
Heard On Route 51

Last week, Route 51 featured two members of the Wisconsin 14 who fled to Illinois to deny a quorum for Governor Scott Walker’s budget repair bill: State Senator Julie Lassa, Democrat from Stevens Point, and State Senator Bob Jauch, Democrat from Superior. This Thursday, we hear from the Republican side of the budget debate with State Senator Pam Galloway, Republican from Wausau, and State Senator Luther Olsen, Republican from Ripon. The Republican senators will be asked about the controversy surrounding the Governor?s plan to limit collective bargaining rights, the big budget cuts facing public schools and local governments, and the efforts to recall both Republican and Democratic state senators.
