"There's no deal yet, that's for sure", Fitzgerald said.

Republican Assembly leaders on Thursday told Gov. Scott Walker they had accepted his offer to use $200 million originally meant to cut income taxes to instead help pay for roads.

The Assembly's acceptance could be a breakthrough in the budget stalemate, which has caused a new state spending plan to be delayed by 20 days, but there was no word from Senate Republicans on whether they would agree to Walker's proposal. "I think we can eliminate, or at least come close to eliminating all the transportation bonding, still keep the transportation budget on track, and do that without a gas tax or vehicle registration fee increase", Walker said. The Senate has proposed $721 million borrowing; the Assembly opposes more borrowing.
