Walker taps insurance fund to fill in deficit Spokesman says taxpayers put in most of money By Jason Stein - Journal Sentinel April 4, 2011

The insurance fund had $90.8 million in it as of August, according to the Legislative Fiscal Bureau. Most of that money - 94% - was paid by state agencies, but state employees also contribute to the fund.
