The Senate and Assembly approved a plan this week to fix the $527 million plan. Governor Doyle says he'll use his veto pen to make deeper cuts than approved by the legislature. Doyle says he doesn't like the idea of delaying school aid payments to local districts until the next budget. He also doesn't want to take $200 million from the state's tobacco settlement, in order to off set those potential vetoes.
Doyle may target transportation funding that lawmakers added during the budget fix. He says the legislature has spent $100 million more during budget repair than with the approved budget.
The governor also plans on possibly scaling back some programs that were supposed to expand the second year of the original budget.
