Doyle won't guarantee no tax hike
Gov. Jim Doyle says he'll keep trying to avoid a sales or income tax increase.
But he won't guarantee it as the expected deficit in the next state budget has grown to more than $5 billion.
It's the highest funding gap in state history.
Doyle managed to avoid raising the state's two main taxes in 2003, when he closed a 3.2 billion dollar shortfall.
