UPDATE: Walker signing wolf hunt, youth concussion bills

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker is signing bills into law that will create the state's first wolf hunt and crack down on concussions among high school students.

Walker scheduled bill signings across the state on Monday.

At an elementary school in Wausau, he signed a bill that would require all new kindergartners to be tested on how well they can read. The measure also imposes new standards for prospective teachers and makes student performance a part of educators' evaluations.

Walker planned to sign the bill creating a wolf hunt from mid-October through February at a dock maker in Woodruff.

He planned to sign the concussion bill at Lambeau Field. The measure requires any young athlete suspected of suffering a concussion to be removed immediately from the activity until checked by a doctor.
