MADISON, Wis. (AP) - There is no deal yet on whether to eliminate any requirements that Wisconsin municipal workers live in the cities where they work.
The budget-writing Joint Finance Committee planned to vote on the issue Thursday. But committee co-chair Rep. John Nygren says a deal remains a "work in progress."
Gov. Scott Walker proposed eliminating any requirements statewide. But opponents say it was primarily targeting Milwaukee, which requires all city and school district employees to live in the city.
Nygren said Wednesday a deal was being floated to allow employees to live a certain distance outside the city boundaries, but face a penalty if they do.
Budget committee co-chair Sen. Alberta Darling says senators oppose the penalty part, but agree with setting an allowable radius in which workers can live.
