Wausau City Council Meets On Budget Bill Impasse


WAUSAU, Wis (WSAU) A large , mostly pro-union crowd gathered at the Wausau City Council chambers on Friday and applauded as the Council voted to send a letter and resolution to Governor Scott Walker asking for changes in his budget repair bill. The vote was unanimous to tell the Governor to pull out the language that takes away collective bargaining rights from most public employee unions.

Council president Ed Gale said that "Governor Walker needs to listen to the local officials who are telling him to get out of our business" Other Council members said they hope the governor will be able to reach some sort of compromise with the unions.

Meanwhile a Neenah lawmaker, one of four Republicans in the assembly to vote against Governor Walkers plan, says the bill goes to far. He agrees that public employee unions should pay more for their insurance and pensions but that can be accomplished without taking away collective bargaining
