Fox News and local Wisconsin outlets are reporting that the Wisconsin Senate Democrat leader has requested a meeting with Gov. Scott Walker -- near the state border.

The leader's letter suggested meeting '"near the Wisconsin-Illinois border to formally resume serious discussions" on Walker's budget repair bill."

Shouldn't serious discussions among legislators on a budget repair bill take place where business is supposed to be conducted -- at the state Capitol? You'd think this arrangement has to be costing taxpayers more money, too.
