Ellis Vows to Fix Voucher Provision

By John Forester(Don't Use) | June 16, 2011

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is now reporting the following:

Senate President Mike Ellis (R-Neenah) said senators oppose the way the budget provision was drafted. He said the Senate would pass the budget Thursday as it is written, but then soon pass a separate bill that would ensure school vouchers are not expanded beyond Racine.

“Nobody agrees with the language that was inserted in there,” Ellis said. “We’re going to pass the damn thing the way it is and come back with a trailer bill.”

Ellis and Walker spokesman Cullen Werwie said the governor would sign the second bill. The governor also will not use his veto pen to expand choice statewide in the budget, they said.
