La Follette calls budget cuts 'nonsense'

MADISON - Secretary of State Doug La Follette says budget cuts to his office are "totally unthought out nonsense."

The Legislature's budget-writing Joint Finance Committee voted Wednesday to cut his office by more than half a million dollars and eliminate two of three fulltime positions.

La Follette says the move will cripple his office and leave him unable to process documents as required by law. He says it will be a "train wreck" and unrealistic to expect his office to continue serving the public as expected.
