MADISON, Wis. -

The Legislature's Joint Finance Committee plans to move ahead with a vote on Gov. Scott Walker's proposed budget for his chief economic development agency despite mounting concerns and Democrats' calls for a delay.

Committee co-chair Rep. John Nygren said Wednesday he was prepared to move ahead with Thursday's vote on the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp. two-year, $75.6 million budget.

Democrats have called for a delay given serious issues raised in a nonpartisan audit last week. That report was to be reviewed by the Legislature's Audit Committee at the same time on Thursday that WEDC's budget was up for a vote.

Nygren says that while reforms may be needed at WEDC, he doesn't believe it should hold up consideration of the agency's budget.
