Stone said he would have preferred to leave the collective bargaining intact, but felt the other provisions in the measure made the repair bill worth supporting.
"It's not a perfect bill," Stone said.
This is after Stone voted against every Democratic amendment to the budget repair bill -- including ones that would have protected collective bargaining -- and stood with Scott Walker when he introduced that same bill at a press conference a few weeks ago.
I think there were probably a lot of state Republicans in Wisconsin who were for Walkers bill before they
were against it realized how huge a liability it was.
