Governor Scott Walker, for the first half of his state of the state address last night, talked about jobs and job creation. The second half was devoted to education. State Representative Steve Doyle says he knew all that would be in the speech. But one word that was hardly spoken is what troubles him.
The La Crosse Democrat said instead of giving out false job improvement numbers, the Governor needs to look at legislation that he and several other democrats have out there....that would create jobs...and not cost a dime. Legislation that has support from both sides.
Governor Scott Walker gave his state of the state address last night....and he fought through some tough voices in the balcony.
This went on periodically throughout the 45 minute speech and each one was escorted out by capitol police. Senator Jennifer Shilling says, besides the Governor's speech, the outburts were something else she did not agree with.
Shilling says she was upset that for the second year in a row, the Governor failed to recognize the $59 billion agriculture industry and the needs of rural communities.
It was a first for State Representative, JIll Billings, last night...her first state of the state address. Impressed? Nope.
Billings also said Governor Walker spoke a lot about education but his education reform agenda does not address the real problems our school districts are facing. She says it’s about choices.
A man who kept several police agencies at bay in a 7 hour standoff Sunday in Tomah......has been officially charged. 22 year old Kenneth Roark faces 7 charges including second degree recklessly endangering safety, possession of a firearm while intoxicated and possession of THC and drug paraphernalia.
Wisconsin's junior senator says that President Obama's plan to increase taxes on the nation's highest wage earners is a mistake in the effort to jump start the nation's slow economy. Ron Johnson says it comes down to a lack of leadership.
Johnson also cited parts of Obama's tax plan that he claimed would hurt the ability of job creators to grow their businesses and stimulate growth.
