Gov. Doyle seeks 4 percent limit on local property tax levy hikes

Doyle wants to let local governments raise their property tax levies more because state government can't offer them significant new cash, Fitzgerald said.State Rep. Kitty Rhoades, R-Hudson, co-chairman of the Legislature's Joint Finance Committee, said the GOP will work to cut back Doyle's proposal."Somebody is going to have to be the defensive line," she said.

Doyle told the Wisconsin State Journal that his budget would expand 4-year-old kindergarten classes."I believe really strongly in good early childhood development and I think everybody who is involved in education understands how important it is for kids to get off to a good start," he said in an interview with the Madison newspaper.
