For the first time in more than three decades, Wisconsin could have a new budget in place before the fiscal year begins.

Gov. Jim Doyle announced plans to sign the budget that runs July 1 to June 30, 2011, on Monday. The governor plans to sign the budget at 11 a.m. in the Executive Residence in Madison.

Tomorrow's budget signing marks the first time a budget has been completed on time since 1977.

Doyle's "Stronger Wisconsin" budget builds upon the state's commitment to expand access to affordable health care coverage, invests in Wisconsin businesses that will create jobs and lead to future growth and continues to protect priorities like education and police and fire protection, in the face of unprecedented national economic challenges, according to the governor's office.
