Doyle Weighing All Options on Budget Vetoes

Gov. Jim Doyle today declined to rule out vetoing the entire Republican- crafted budget alternative making its way through the Legislature.

When whether he would consider vetoing the entire budget bill based on inadequate education funding, Doyle said:

"I am considering all my options, there is no real language in the budget yet....It will still be a couple of weeks before there is an actual bill that somebody can start to really look at and see whether I can correct it sufficiently by partial vetoes or whether I have to veto the whole thing.
