Republicans in the state Assembly want a budget repair change. Speaker Mike Huebsch and Majority Leader Jeff Fitzgerald want to override Governor Jim Doyle's vetoes of the budget repair bill. Those took bigger cuts out of K-12 aid, SeniorCare and the state's transportation fund. Assembly Minority Leader Jim Kreuser notes that while the budget repair bill specified no cuts to those three programs, that provision was not in the original budget. Republican lawmakers, says Kreuser, don't have the courage to make budget cuts themselves, while telling the governor that he doesn't have the latitude to find savings where he can.
