Gov. Jim Doyle used his veto pen, made some changes to the state’s budget, and signed it into law Monday morning. The budget plugs a $6.6 billion hole in state spending before the new fiscal year starts on Wednesday. It was the first time since 1977 that a state budget was signed on time. Legislative votes on the budget were largely partisan, with most Democrats supporting the budget and a Republican minority saying it was too costly in a time of economic distress.
