Joint Finance deal boosts school aids, cuts taxes; provision gives tax break for private school tuition, more state briefs
MADISON -- The Legislature's Joint Finance Committee is expected to take its final votes Wednesday on the new state budget.

The deal includes a $650 million income tax cut over the next two years - almost twice as much as what Republican Gov. Scott Walker first announced in February.
