Note: On March 11, Governor Doyle vetoed the Republican property tax bill, and on March 16 the Assembly upheld his veto.

The governor had planned to veto the measure earlier, but Republican legislative leaders chose to withhold the bill at the last minute. They finally sent the bill to him on March 11, and he vetoed it immediately, saying it failed to protect public schools and local governments. The governor's property tax freeze plan includes $850 million in new school aid.
