MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Republican Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald plans to meet with other legislative leaders on Monday as an agreement on several key issues in the state budget remains elusive.

Fitzgerald spokeswoman Myranda Tanck says he is meeting with other legislative leaders on Monday night. She declined to say who was going to be at the meeting.

The budget-writing Joint Finance Committee has not meet since May 29. It was expected to come back for perhaps its final meeting on Wednesday, but that had not been formally announced.

Republicans are struggling over how to pay for highways and transportation projects, a $500 million financing plan for a new Milwaukee Bucks stadium and what changes to make to the state’s prevailing wage law that sets a minimum salary for workers on certain jobs.
