The Governor warned this week that Wisconsin could be facing a $3 billion shortfall next year, and that has cities across the state worried that it will lead to big holes in their own budget.
Governor Doyle says nothing is off the table when it comes to filling that budget hole, including education and shared revenue payments. Rich Eggleston of the Wisconsin Alliance of Cities says that could result in tough times for many local governments.
If shared revenue payments are cut or frozen, Eggleston says it will have serious consequences. He says local governments have already trimmed all of the fat out of their budgets, so any cuts will affect services.
