State Representative Paul Tittl of Manitowoc helped pass the 2017-2019 budget late last night. He was part of the 57 assembly members that voted in favor of it, while 39 voted against it. Tittl stated that the budget is something he can get behind, because it will help people across the state. The two year, 76-billion dollar package now goes to the Senate, where its fate is uncertain as up to six senators have concerns that reportedly include a record amount of public school aid. Senate Republicans are expected to meet today (Thursday) to see if they can get enough votes to pass the budget in its current form so lawmakers don’t have to return next week to debate last minute changes.
