Panel wants state office space outside Madison, Milwaukee

Posted:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Republicans who control the Legislature's budget committee want to look for state agency office space outside Madison and Milwaukee.

The Republicans released a plan Wednesday to tuck provisions in Gov. Scott Walker's state budget that would require the Department of Administration to look for lease options in counties other than Dane or Milwaukee.

DOA would have to submit an analysis for each lease or renewal to the budget committee examining the savings that would come with moving the agency, department, division or bureau to an office outside the two counties.

The Republicans plan to vote on the plan later Wednesday.
