MADISON - Gov. Scott Walker released the following statement regarding the action taken by the Legislature:

"The Senate Democrats have had three weeks to debate this bill and were offered repeated opportunities to come home, which they refused.  In order to move the state forward, I applaud the Legislature's action today to stand up to the status quo and take a step in the right direction to balance the budget and reform government.  The action today will help ensure Wisconsin has a business climate that allows the private sector to create 250,000 jobs."
