MADISON, Wis. – Wisconsin’s governor was set to unveil a budget yesterday including painful cuts while Democratic lawmakers sought to block Republican efforts in three states to enact curbs on unions’ power to negotiate.

Republican Governor Scott Walker — whose proposal two weeks ago to curtail collective bargaining by Wisconsin’s pubic sector workers has sparked huge protests at the Capitol — will attempt to close a projected $3.6 billion two-year deficit in his biannual budget for the fiscal years 2012 and 2013.
