MADISON – Gov. Tony Evers is hinting he will veto a provision of the state budget that would allow a handful of lawmakers to establish new vehicle fees if it gets to him. 

Republicans on the Legislature's Joint Finance Committee tucked the provision into the budget in a late-night session last week. In the days since, conservatives have come out against it, raising questions about whether it will survive. 

"I think that’s shaky policy, not only for the rest of the Legislature but also the executive branch," Evers said in an interview Tuesday.
