Wisconsin's Republican-led state Senate passed Gov. Scott Walker's proposed restrictions on collective bargaining for public employees Wednesday, getting around a Democratic walkout by stripping financial provisions from the "Budget Repair" 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," Sen. Scott Fitzgerald, the chamber's Republican majority leader, said in a statement announcing the move.

Senators were able to move ahead by voting only on the non-financial aspects of Walker's proposed bill, which requires fewer members for a quorum. But the move drew howls of outrage from outside the chamber, where pro-union demonstrators chanted "Shame, shame," as the bill passed.

See it really wasn't about the budget after all.

He will be recalled in 10 months.

They would need to get 540,000 signatures to have a recall election...not very likely

I can't believe it took them this long to do it. The next election cycle in WI will be really interesting.

You don't think that allowing the state and municipal governments renegotiate commitments has a financial impact?

Of course it does. He did just what I was saying. He handcuffed them, took away their voice and forced them to take whatever they get handed to them

Be prepared for a claim that the open meetings act was violated.

Than they can find jobs in the private sector if they don't like it. I'm sure there are plenty of people who will do their jobs. That's the great thing about being employed at will.

The open meetings act was likely violated. Calling for a emergency 2-hour announcement probably isn't going to fly.

The republicans will pay the price for this.

I love Fox News' headline "Rabid Leftists Storm Wisconsin Capitol After Vote"

Hahaha, what a load of ****. All of the sudden public workers that want the ability to negotiate fair wages are "rabid leftists".

Even if it does violate the open meetings act, Dems are more than likely going to come back now, and there will be a quorum.

I just find it ironic that the same people who fled the state to avoid a vote are accusing the Repulicans of hijacking democracy.

They have a choice to make...they aren't forced to work in the public sector.
