PLEASANT PRAIRIE, Wis. (AP) ó A handful of protesters greeted people coming to see Gov. Scott Walker sign the Wisconsin state budget.

About a half-dozen protesters were waving signs outside the Pleasant Prairie company where the governor is expected to sign the budget on Sunday.

Seventy-year-old retiree Mary Palmer, of Racine, came to protest with her two sisters and a couple of teachers.

Palmer said she thinks Walker isnít doing enough to support education and she doesnít like his plans to expand private school vouchers.

Palmer also says she opposes the governorís policies generally, and thinks he cares more about corporations than state residents.
