The Democratic governor seems to like the budget alright, but doesn't want to put his name to it. Instead he's leaving it up Republicans to figure out how to pay for it. So when inevitably taxes go up he'll say hey it wasn't me. Sounds like a future campaign strategy he might plan on using for himself in the next election.
One thing voters can always count on from either party after the elections is more of the same tomfoolery as was the last.
