MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The state government has a $35 million surplus from a pair of economic development accounts.
Majority Republicans in the Legislature say they're deciding what to do with the money.
The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation has $18.5 million in excess. An economic development tax on businesses has another surplus of $17 million.
The Wisconsin State Journal says lawmakers can use the surplus to cut taxes, reduce debt, or pay for new programs that create jobs. They could also choose to leave it alone in the state's general fund.
Minority Democrats say the money should go to workers in the forms of training programs.
