WATERTOWN (AP) - In the face of opposition from fellow Republicans, Gov. Scott Walker said Thursday that he's open to adding more money for public schools, the University of Wisconsin and roads as long as property taxes are still cut as he originally proposed. Walker is getting the most pushback from Republicans who control the Legislature over his plans for cutting UW's budget by $300 million, holding public school funding flat over two years, and borrowing $1.3 billion for roads.
