Reading the Governor's Budget Proposal

In addition to taking a few minutes to read the press coverage of the governor's budget proposal, consider also taking a few days to read (or at least skim) the actual budget proposal.

That link is to the "Budget in Brief," which is a not-so-brief 114 pages. It's long, but it's also worth the extra time.

It's important to remember this is a Doyle administration document. Nevertheless, it provides a very complete picture of the budget proposal, certainly more complete than any news story or press release, and -- importantly -- it includes the context surrounding the governor's proposals and priorities.

It shouldn't be necessarily the last place you look for information on the budget proposal, nor should it necessarily be the first, but it should be one of the places.

More budget documents are here. And if you just want the numbers, those are here.
