MADISON (AP) - The state Assembly was poised Wednesday to pass and ship the state's $73.3 billion budget to Gov. Scott Walker for his signature as he prepares to announce his 2016 presidential campaign. The Republican-controlled Assembly planned to vote on the budget around 11 p.m., but debate was interrupted for about two hours while police checked out what they called a "credible" bomb threat.
