MADISON (AP) - One of the 14 Democratic state senators that fled Wisconsin rather than vote on a bill taking away collective bargaining rights says he fears Republicans may find a way to vote on a key part of the measure without them.
Democratic state Sen. Jon Erpenbach told The Associated Press on Monday that Republicans could attempt to attach the part of the proposal taking away collective bargaining rights to an unrelated bill and pass it Tuesday.
Republican Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald said Sunday the Senate may come into session to take up appointments and other bills Tuesday, but he didn't say which ones.
The 19 Republicans can't act on the bill as Gov. Scott Walker proposed it because it has a fiscal impact, which requires 20 senators to be there.
