Here's another good thing for them to do next session: GAAP standards for Wisconsin budgets.
...Last year, the Wisconsin Legislature passed a budget that avoided most of the accounting tricks and fund transfers used by previous administrations, Democrat and Republican alike, to balance the budget as state law requires.
Well, maybe not.
...A report from the nonpartisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau indicated that Wisconsin is projected to have a $53 million deficit at the end of fiscal 2012, which concludes June 30, and a $208 million deficit at the end of fiscal 2013, due largely to lower-than-expected tax revenue.
Balancing the budget using GAAP principles may take another 6 years or so, but honest budgeting should be a priority for actual Conservatives.
