Gov. Doyle Can't Break Old Habits

The Frankenstein Veto was given life when Governor Doyle combined sentences to spend $427 million the Legislature never authorized. Thankfully, such egregious vetoes are not evident in this budget bill, due to the people's ratification of the ban of the Frankenstein Veto last spring. I am, however, greatly disappointed that Governor Doyle still managed to violate the ban in one part of the budget bill with his partial vetoes, in direct contradiction to our state's Consititution.
