MADISON (WRN)   As Governor Scott Walker reviews the state budget passed by the Legislature and ponders possible vetoes, several lawmakers are asking him not to touch a provision that would designate the Kringle as Wisconsin’s Official State Pastry.

The Kringle is a large, flat, oval-shaped pastry with heavy ties to the Danish community in Racine.

The item was a last minute addition to the budget by the Legislature’s Joint Finance Committee, at the urging of Racine Democrat Cory Mason. In a letter to Walker, Mason and a group of bipartisan lawmakers argue the designation for the iconic pastry would be a source of great pride for communities in Southeast Wisconsin.

The governor has until June 30th to make any vetoes to the budget and to sign the bill.
