The governor of Wisconsin unveiled his budget Tuesday, saying it will work if his controversial budget repair bill is passed.

Governor Scott Walker's budget cuts $1.5 billion in public school and local government aid but it avoids tax or fee increases. Still, opponents say it's damaging to the state.

Walker's bill would strip most public employees of their collective bargaining rights, but it can't pass until senate democrats return to work.

He warned of dire consequences if they don't come back, saying schools face massive teacher lay-offs.
