MADISON (AP) - Democrats provided majority Republicans the votes they needed Wednesday to approve $350 million in borrowing for major road construction projects across Wisconsin, avoiding delays that could affect some of the most heavily traveled parts of the state. In a rare bipartisan vote, four Democrats joined with six Republicans on the Legislature's budget-writing Joint Finance Committee. All six Senate Republicans voted against it.
