MADISON, Wisconsin — How much to cut the University of Wisconsin System budget, how to pay for roads and approving a financing deal for a new Milwaukee Bucks stadium are all on the agenda for the final planned meeting of the Legislature's Joint Finance Committee.

The panel hoped to complete its work on the state budget with a meeting that was scheduled to begin Friday.

One of the biggest unresolved issues facing the committee Friday is how to pay for state transportation projects.

Republicans who control the Legislature have said they don't want to borrow as much as Gov. Scott Walker proposed. But Walker is against raising taxes.

The panel is also slated to vote on whether to go along with $300 million in cuts to UW as Walker wants.
