Democratic Gov. Tony Evers, who had objected to an earlier version, had no immediate comment Monday on the latest 87-page proposal.
Evers said on Friday he was hopeful that a bipartisan deal could be reached.
The key provision that Evers objected to in the earlier version, which would have given the Legislature’s GOP-controlled budget committee the power to make any cuts in spending it wanted, was removed from the latest plan.
