Wynn, Nass help budget-repair bill pass through assembly

Rep. Evan Wynn, R-Whitewater, and Rep. Steve Nass, R-Whitewater, were two of the 51 Republicans who voted to pass Gov. Scott Walker’s budget-repair bill on Friday. The bill passed through the assembly with a vote of 51-17, with 28 representatives not voting at all.

All Democrats that were present voted against the bill along with four Republicans.

Many of the Democratic members in the assembly were upset with how quickly the decision came down to vote on the bill. Rep. Peter Barca, D-Kenosha, said the vote was rushed so fast that even a couple Republicans missed the vote.

Barca said the Democrats will review tape to see if any laws were broken in the rush to vote on the bill. If laws were violated, the vote could be invalidated.
