Wisconsin Republicans Pass Contested Bill

By Michael Baron03/09/11 – 08:26 PM EST

NEW YORK (TheStreet) — A legislative standoff that’s lingered for weeks in Wisconsin’s state senate entered its next phase on Wednesday as Republican senators passed a controversial bill stripping the state’s unions of most of their collective bargaining rights despite the absence of their Democratic counterparts, who fled the state in mid-February to stall the bill.

The 14 Democrats missing from the floor since Feb. 17 have defended their absence by saying Gov. Scott Walker and the Republicans, which have a majority in the senate, are unwilling to compromise at all on the bill.

The Wall Street Journal reported the bill was passed by a vote of 18 to 1, saying the Republicans deemed they had a found a way to bypass the absence of the Democrats by removing fiscal items from the bill.

“Tonight, the Senate will be passing the items in the budget repair bill that we can, with the 19 members who actually do show up and do their jobs,” said Sen. Scott Fitzgerald, the Republican majority leader, in a statement, according to the WSJ.
