MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Top lawmakers are meeting in secret with Governor Jim Doyle's staff for a third straight day to try to reach a budget deal.
Those involved with the talks at the governor's residence are not commenting on what is being discussed or whether agreements are being reached.
Doyle called the talks after lawmakers on a bipartisan budget conference committee were unable to reach a deal. The budget is 12 weeks late.
Republicans do not support the more than $1 billion in tax increases included a Democratic version of the budget. Democrats object to a Republican plan that would provide far less funding for the University of Wisconsin and state government operations than Doyle proposed.
