MADISON, Wis. -

Governor Scott Walker declared April “New Homes Month,” highlighting the economic impact home construction has on the state.

Governor Walker's office says New Home Month will be an opportunity to show the value of a home, to the family who lives in it and to the community and construction workers.

"The construction tied to each new home supports at least three full-time, family supporting jobs," Governor Walker said in a statement. "The economic impact of these homes is so important to the workers, community, and state since the value is felt at all levels."
