MADISON, Wis. (WHBL) - The 2011-2013 state budget is headed for the full legislature. 

The spending plan was approved by the Joint Finance Committee Friday on a 12 to 5 party line vote.  There were more protests during the meeting as about 30 demonstrators had to be removed and arrested for disrupting the discussions. 

UW-Madison will not be split off into a separate authority, but UW System schools will have less red tape in such areas as personnel, budgeting and goods and services purchases. 

The committee also voted to scale back a plan to privatize enrollment for state aid programs for the poor.  It also approved a new tax cut for manufacturing and agricultural businesses
