ATLANTA -- Gov. Buddy Roemer plans to sign Louisiana's $4.59 billion 1992 general fund budget passed this week by the state Legislature, but only after he vetoes about $100 million in spending, a key state official said yesterday.

Dennis Stine, commissioner of administration and finance, said there also could be some cuts in capital spending approved by the lawmakers for fiscal 1992, which began July 1. Those cuts would affect authorization for $678.4 million in state and federal cash outlays and $693 million of bonds for building projects.
