Walker Postpones Casino Decision

Oct 25, 2013

Gov. Scott Walker will not make an announcement today regarding a plan to build a new casino on the site of the former Dairyland Greyhound Park.

The Associated Press has gotten a copy of the governor's book, "Unintimidated: A Governor's Story and a Nation's Challenge," set for release on Nov. 19.

State lawmakers Tuesday are batting around a plan by Gov. Walker to cut property taxes by $100 million.

Gov. Scott Walker says the Mexican Consulate office in Chicago, that serves Wisconsin residents, has too long of a wait.

Gov. Walker and Republican leaders have unveiled a plan to provide $100 million in property tax relief.

Governor Walker now has a declared opponent in seeking another term. Mary Burke threw her hat into the ring Monday.

If you have watched television lately, you may have seen ads touting Gov. Scott Walker’s job creation efforts. He campaigned in 2010 on a promise to create 250,000 private sector jobs by 2015.

The business lobbying group, Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce, has been running the ads across the state. They come 14 months before next year’s gubernatorial election – when the jobs picture promises to be an issue.

The ads reflect favorably on Gov. Walker’s tenure.

Gov. Walker’s office announced Thursday that he’ll attend the Midwest U.S.-Japan Association Conference in Tokyo.

It begins Sunday and runs through Tuesday.

Walker says the goal of the trip is to build trade ties between Wisconsin and investors and businesses in Japan. Walker says the country is “very important” to the state’s global business, as Wisconsin’s fifth largest destination for exports.

The governor says Japan is the number one buyer of Wisconsin products in the medical and scientific instruments category.
