PLEASANT PRAIRIE, Wis. (AP - Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has signed the state budget after making several dozen vetoes to it.
The budget includes Walker's major priorities -- a $650 million income tax cut, rejection of federal Medicaid expansion and the expansion of private school vouchers statewide.
Most of Walker's vetoes to the $70 billion, two-year spending plan are technical.
But the governor did veto a provision Sunday in Pleasant Prairie that would have allowed bounty hunters in Wisconsin. They have not been permitted in the state since 1979.
Walker also vetoed a provision that would have kicked the independent Center for Investigative Journalism off of the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus and barred it from working with university professors. Walker says that's a matter for the UW System Board of Regents to decide.20781566
