Madison — The Assembly will delay a vote on Gov. Scott Walker’s budget repair bill until later Thursday.
The Assembly was scheduled to take up the bill at 11 a.m. but has had to delay action because demonstrators had stationed themselves in front of the chamber.
“Capitol Police has advised us to delay the Assembly session until the building can be properly secured,” Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald (R-Horicon) said Thursday. “Assembly Republicans still intend to make a vote and pass the (bill) today.”
There is a lockdown of the Capitol. The Capitol is surrounded by protestors and even Assembly representatives are locked out.
People are being physically removed and arrested.
Madison students are calling for a student walkout in support of their teachers and are asking students state-wide to join them.
