Union-busting laws to be folded into Biennium Budget Bill and Re-Passed?

An Open Capitol Building

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is reporting on its political blog today that Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald has said that if the union-busting measure in the stripped BRB is invalidated or held up in the courts, the provisioins could be stuck into the biennium budget bill and repassed.

Money quotes:
Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald (R-Juneau) said Tuesday that the measure could be included in the 2011-'13 state budget and passed a second time if the bill remains hung up in court.
"Ultimately, it'll be part of the state budget if it isn't fixed or dealt with in the courts," Fitzgerald said. Previously, Fitzgerald had said only that the measure wouldn't be taken up again and passed as a stand-alone bill.
