MONROE - April's always a big month for tax collection in state government, and Gov. Jim Doyle saw numbers last April that surprised him.Tax revenues had fallen off by 35 percent from April 2008, Doyle said, a drop that even in the midst of a deep national recession made him question whether the figures he was receiving were wrong."I checked with other states and found that we were about average" in the decline of revenues, Doyle said Tuesday morning during a visit with the editorial board of The Monroe Times.
