State budget

Johnny Depp will probably never make another movie in Wisconsin.

Governor Doyle used his veto pen to lower the amount of funding for tax break incentives for filmmakers in the 2009-2011 state budget.

The current program had no limits. The governor had proposed changing the program to allow a limit of $500,000 annually. The Legislature’s budget called for a $1.5 million program. The governor’s veto reduced it to $500,000.

ronically, the governor announced this veto just two days before the nationwide opening of one of the most-talked about movies of the summer, “Public Enemies,” much of which was filmed in Wisconsin.
