MADISON, Wisconsin — Republicans who control the Wisconsin Legislature don't have deals yet on financing a new arena for the Milwaukee Bucks or highway funding.

Both of those items have been removed from consideration by the budget-writing Joint Finance Committee on Friday. Committee co-chair Rep. John Nygren says there is no agreement on either issue.

The panel plans to meet again Tuesday to take up issues related to the Department of Revenue and taxation.

The panel was meeting Friday on other topic, including funding of the University of Wisconsin and the Department of Natural Resources.

Once the committee completes its changes to the budget, the two-year spending plan goes to the Senate and Assembly where more changes can be made.

Gov. Scott Walker can also rewrite the plan with his extensive veto power.
