GOP senator vague on his budget-repair vote

DODGEVILLE, Wis (WSAU) State Senate Republican Dale Schultz told 450 people in Dodgeville last night that there’s a good reason he’s refusing to say how he’ll vote on the G-O-P’s budget repair bill. Schultz told the audience that he’s trying to bring people together. In his words, “When you draw a line in the stand, and you are definitive of what you say, people tend to move away from you – closer to the abyss.”

Schultz proposed a compromise to the standoff over Governor Scott Walker’s plan to limit collective bargaining privileges for public employee unions. The Richland Center lawmaker says those restrictions should be temporary, and brought back in 2013. But his plan has gone nowhere – and he has not said whether he’ll join the G-O-P program and support Walker’s current measure.

The governor continues to stand firm, while 14 Senate Democrats stay away from the Capitol to hold up a vote.
