LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker spent the day after his two-year budget address touring the state.

Walker stopped in La Crosse Thursday afternoon, talking about his proposed state budget. The governor says his highest priorities were investments into the state's education, infrastructure and workforce.

While state legislators in both parties have doubts about the proposals, the governor believes these are issues residents want addressed.

"I think it's important to make the case to the people first, and then if people support the proposals, which I believe they will, more in education, more in higher education, more relief for the workforces, and more tax relief, those are pretty compelling issues,” said Walker.

Governor Walker says much of the increased funding he proposed was made possible by reforms implemented during his governorship.
