MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A Republican senator who has been critical of a school accountability bill that would make private voucher students take a statewide test and face penalties for poor performance plans to meet with members of Gov. Scott Walker's staff to discuss a compromise.

Sen. Paul Farrow said he planned to meet Thursday with the governor's staff to discuss his concerns and ways to find a solution. The meeting comes the day after the bill's sponsor, Republican Sen. Luther Olsen, canceled a plan vote on the measure because of opposition from Farrow and others.

Walker said Wednesday that he was going to work with lawmakers to find a compromise that can pass this session.

Farrow says if a deal can't be reached within a week, it's unlikely anything will get done.
