MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker is scheduled to deliver his two-year budget plan that will include an income tax cut, an expansion of private school vouchers and a tightening of Medicaid eligibility.

Walker is to release the details during a speech to the full Legislature on Wednesday night. You can watch it live on channel 7-2 or Charter channel 969.

The plan will be debated by the Legislature's budget committee over the next four months, then voted on by both the Senate and Assembly sometime before it takes effect in July.

Walker has revealed many of the major parts of his proposal over the past couple weeks, including rejecting a federally funded Medicaid expansion.

While he has promised the budget will include a middle class income tax cut, Walker has yet to give the details of how that will be structured.
