MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Vos says Gov. Scott Walker’s proposed $127 million cut to K-12 public schools next year will be plugged, despite a new report showing the state will have no additional revenue.

Vos talked about the issue Wednesday at a meeting of transportation officials. His comments came just after the nonpartisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau says there will be no additional tax collections over the next two years.

Vos says that will make it more difficult for the Legislature as it works on Walker’s budget in coming weeks. But he says restoring funding for K-12 schools will be done, and he will provide details how later Wednesday.

Vos says he’s also committed to lowering borrowing for roads from $1.3 billion to about $900 million.
