MADISON, Wis. (AP) – Gov. Scott Walker is vetoing provisions in the state budget that would have allowed bounty hunters to operate in Wisconsin and kicked an investigative journalism center off the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus. Walker plans to sign the budget and release all 57 vetoes on Sunday. He discussed the vetoes with The Associated Press on Friday. Walker’s major priorities remain unchanged. Those include a $650 million income tax cut, rejection of federal Medicaid expansion and expanding private school vouchers statewide. Walker says he’s vetoing the bail bondsmen provision because it’s a policy he’s “not thrilled with.” He says whether the Center for Investigative Journalism operates on the UW-Madison campus is an issue for the Board of Regents. He’s also allowing kringle to be named the official Wisconsin pastry.
