Governor Jim Doyle says his priorities in dealing with a $652 million shortfall in state revenue collections will continue to be making sure education and health care needs are met. And while Doyle says he has no intention to raise any taxes to make up for the revenue shortfall, he does believe an assessment on state hospitals ought to be back on the table.

The Legislative Fiscal Bureau released projections last week which indicate that Wisconsin faces a $652 million shortfall for the biennial budget period.
