Walker Reverses Decision

(12/7/13) After reversing his original position, Gov. Scott Walker, Friday, signed legislation to request more federal money to help unemployed people with disabilities find jobs faster.


Walker said he changed his mind about seeking more federal funding as the state's own finances improved. The governor's comments came during a signing ceremony at Independent Living Resources in La Crosse, an agency that assists people with disabilities. The legislation received overwhelming bipartisan support and was approved by the Republican-controlled Assembly and Senate in November after Walker announced his backing. It is part of a broader package of bills aimed at strengthening the state's labor market.
