Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is trying to keep the pressure on 14 Democratic state senators who skipped out of town rather than vote on a bill that takes away collective bargaining rights for public workers.
Walker spokesman Cullen Werwie released a statement Monday morning accusing Democrats of vacationing while taxpayers who pay their salaries are hard at work.
Werwie said instead of stimulating the Illinois economy, Democrats should come back to Madison and vote on the bill.
Democrats say they won’t return unless Walker is willing to make concessions to the bill, something he has been unwilling to do.
Republican legislative leaders say they have the votes to pass the bill as is.
