MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker says he is recommitting to a $75 million economic development loan fund in his next budget, as well as increasing the amount of money dedicated to attracting international tourism and bolstering entrepreneurs in Wisconsin.
Walker detailed those and other parts of his budget at an economic development conference on Thursday.
Walker says other key parts of his plan, like creating a new investment fund, remain in development.
