Doyle doesn't want to raise car registrations

Posted:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Jim Doyle says he doesn't want to raise vehicle registration fees to help balance Wisconsin's budget deficit.

  Doyle says he doesn't want to take any options off the table as he works to fill what he says is a $5.4 billion difference between state agencies' spending requests and projected revenue.

  But he also says vehicle registrations went up in the last state budget from $55 to $75 and that's "not the place to go" this time.

  Doyle says he believes Congress will approve a stimulus package for the states that could include hundreds of millions of dollars for state infrastructure improvements.

  He says he's building a list of projects that would use that money.
