The $76 billion spending plan goes to Gov. Scott Walker for his signature.
The state Assembly passed the budget Wednesday on a 57-39 vote. They've also criticized it for lacking a long-term plan for roads projects, an omission that will further delay road work around the state and cause another $400 million to be borrowed for public-works projects. Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald has said he doesn't have enough votes to get the budget out of his chamber and ship it to Walker. Stephen Nass, R-Whitewater, said he wants to see a January 1 effective date to repeal the state's prevailing wage requirement.
Vos' stance contrasted with Walker, who said earlier Wednesday that he's open to changing the state budget to mollify Republican senators delaying its passage.
Rep. Jason Fields, D-Milwaukee, changed his vote to support the deal, saying he had talked to Department of Administration Secretary Scott Neitzel and others about the opportunities Foxconn would create for African Americans.
Walker reached a deal with three holdout Republicans to win their support for the deal.
Sens. Steve Nass, Duey Stroebel and Chris Kapenga have put together a memo outlining their demands. Spending continued at current levels during the impasse.
Walker says those budgets and others were agreed to Friday with the state Senate.
"I'm still confident we'll have a budget by the end of the summer", Walker said.
High cost transportation aid is in that budget. Democrats are united against it.
Walker said on Wednesday he would be fine with moving up repeal of the prevailing wage from September 2018 to January 1 or earlier.
Republican Rep. John Nygren, co-chair of the Legislature's budget-writing committee, acknowledged the budget has taken longer than usual but funds the state's priorities.
Vos said he was disappointed with the road funding - he had pushed for raising more revenue by raising the gas tax or raising vehicle registration fees rather than borrowing more money - but pledged that the Assembly would not return to the floor next week to adopt any Senate changes.
Sen. Rob Cowles declined to say Tuesday if he backs the budget.
"All of us can walk away saying if the Legislature does nothing else this session we have accomplished our most important task", Vos said. He is praising the plan that passed the Senate Friday night for sending $639 million more to K-12 schools while also slightly reducing property taxes.
Republican Reps. Scott Allen, Janel Brandtjen, Bob Gannon, Adam Jarchow and Joe Sanfelippo voted against the budget.
