The article focuses on the proposal of Wisconsin's Assembly that would solely restrain state government spending growth instead of imposing revenue limits on local governments and school districts through a constitutional amendment. Assembly members attempted to find a compromise plan that would impose some form of limits on government spending in order to garner enough votes so that a vote could be taken.
