Gov. Walker Promises Moderate Agenda Submitted: 01/06/2013
Madison - With Wisconsin bitterly divided, Republican Governor Scott Walker is promising a more moderate agenda in the second half of his term.

Walker says he plans to focus on the budget and job creation in the upcoming session. And he's predicting less political turbulence than his first two years as Governor.

In an interview published Sunday, Walker says none of the legislation he supports this session should prompt massive protests. He hopes to avoid those that rocked the Capitol soon after he became Governor in 2011. Walker says his budget priorities will be job creation, workforce development, tax cuts, education reform and transportation infrastructure.
