The co-chair of the Legislature's budget-writing committee says the framework of a deal to end a state budget impasse would include a new fee on electric vehicles amount to about $100 a year and include around $400 million in borrowing to pay for roads.
House Speaker Paul Ryan says Foxconn Technology Group's plans to construct a factory in his southeastern Wisconsin congressional district that could employ thousands is a "game changer" and an "exceptional deal.".
