Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee


A group of Republican legislators are proposing legislation to scale back the governor's partial veto authority.

Funny, they didn't seem to care as much when Tommy Thompson was using and abusing this authority when he was governor. Even so, I actually agree that the Wisconsin governor's power is excessive and should be scaled back.

As the press release points out, before 1990, the governor was allowed to make whole new words by dropping letters off of words contained in a bill. This legislation would go further by taking that approach to words and sentences.
