    Wisconsin Republicans stripped any spending out of the budget repair bill and passed it not needing a quorum. The bill strips public unions of nearly all collective bargaining rights. Democrat lawmakers hiding in Illinois were said to be racing back to Madison - too late.

    The financial part of the bill can now be passed with a quorum since public unions and Democrats had already agreed to those changes.
