MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Gov. Scott Walker plans to talk about mining and jobs during three stops around Wisconsin.
Walker will visit Valley Plating and Fabricating in Green Bay Wednesday morning to promote his mining agenda. Then he heads to Schofield where he'll address employees at L & S Electric.
The governor will make his final stop of the day in Milwaukee where he'll meet with employees at Phoenix Products Co.
The Legislature is expected to revisit Wisconsin's mining regulations after the session begins this month. Republicans have worked to help Florida-based Gogebic Taconite open a huge iron mine just south of Lake Superior. Company officials have promised the mine would create 700 jobs in the economically depressed region, but want legislators to ease the regulatory path.
