WISCONSIN BUDGET

MADISON, Wis. _ Republican legislative leaders indicated Wednesday that they have not yet reached an agreement with Democratic Gov. Tony Evers on K-12 school funding following a rare closed-door meeting. The roughly 30-minute meeting came a day before a key vote in the Legislature’s budget-writing Joint Finance Committee on school funding.

But as he began hiring staffers, prospective employees asked him about the company culture. By Joyce M. Rosenberg. SENT: 990 words, photos.
