CHICAGO — Representatives of the Wisconsin Assembly and Senate are expected over the next two weeks to resolve differences in their adopted budgets that address a $6.6 billion deficit as state finance officials ready a $800 million cash-flow note issue that could sell as soon as next week.

The state’s budget process advanced with the Senate’s passage of a $62.5 billion, two-year budget late Wednesday. Lawmakers yesterday said they might meet informally to resolve differences instead of setting up a conference committee of members from both chambers to address differences between the Senate version and one previously approved by the House. No action is expected until next week.
