Walker says framework of budget deal coming soon, doesn't reveal details


MADISON, Wisconsin — Gov. Scott Walker says the framework of a budget deal to break a nearly monthlong impasse is likely in the next few days.

Walker did not say Wednesday what the deal may look like.

But Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Vos says in response, "It sounds like the governor is more optimistic than I am."

Walker is downplaying the budget delay, noting that only three budgets have been signed before July 19 since 1983 and two of those were when he was governor.

He also defends his involvement in the budget negotiations, saying he has been more active this year than ever before.
