Wisconsin Assembly Reaches Deal – Debate on Budget Bill Will End Today

Wisconsin Assembly Democrats reached a deal with Republicans early this morning.
Debate on the budget bill will end today around noon.
The AP reported, via Free Republic:

Republicans and Democrats in the Wisconsin Assembly have agreed to a deal that will limit further debate on a bill taking away collective bargaining rights for public workers and lead to a vote on the measure later Thursday.

The deal was announced shortly after 6 a.m. Thursday following an unprecedented 40-hour debate that began Tuesday morning with only short breaks in between.

Democrats agreed to limit further amendments to just 38 with a 10-minute time limit on each one. If they take the maximum time for each, with no breaks, that would put the vote around noon.
