Georgia Governor Vetoes Budget

Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue announced Thursday night that he vetoed lawmakers' 2007 budget. It included $142 million one-time tax break for property owners.

The move sets up a showdown with the legislature over the state's $20.2 billion budget for next fiscal year on the eve of the last day of the 40-day legislative session.

The budget is the only action the legislature is required by law to complete each year.
