Walker will demonstrate personal restraint when applying the governor's veto

Veto is a unilateral power maintained by the head of the executive branch.  In the case of Wisconsin, it is Governor Scott Walker who wields this power with his 19 pens.

In an appropriation bill, such as the state budget, the Wisconsin governor has the power to strike individual words. Walker won't need the single-word veto for the 2011-2013 state budget.
