MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The Republican controlled Joint Committee on Finance is dropping a dozen of Governor Scott Walker's non-fiscal policy items that were included in his proposed state budget.
The policy items are among nearly 60 non-fiscal items that were identified by the Legislative Fiscal Bureau that shouldn't be in a fiscal budget.
Democrats were unsuccessful in getting other non-fiscal items to be taken out so they could be voted on in separate legislation.
Among the proposals left in; a plan to create a school voucher program for special needs students and ending residency requirements for local government workers.
One of the items taken out by the Republican-majority panel would have changed a state law which prohibits foreign ownership of farms bigger than 640 acres.
