Walker: Too early to talk about partial vetoes


Gov. Scott Walker says it's too early to say if he'll veto anything in the overall state budget approved by the Legislature's finance committee.

The Joint Finance Committee finished revising Walker's executive budget early Wednesday morning. All 12 Republicans on the committee voted to pass the spending plan. The four Democrats on the panel voted against it.

The budget now heads to the Assembly for debate, then to the Senate and finally to Walker. The Republican governor can use his extensive partial veto power to rework the document to his liking before he signs it.

The La Crosse Tribune reports Walker was at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse Wednesday to highlight a measure approved by the finance committee that would freeze tuition at state universities for two years.
