MADISON (WKOW) -- State workers are rallying for a second day at the Capitol to fight against Governor Scott Walker's budget repair bill.

They are organizing a rally at noon at the King Street Capitol entrance. As of 11:30 a.m. there were already hundreds at the Capitol, many chanting "Kill the bill!"

There is also additional security again today.

Gov. Walker is expected to hold a news conference in his chamber just before noon in response to the protests.

Demonstrators plan to stay late into the night like Tuesday. They will participate in a candlelight vigil from 3 to 7 p.m. 

Amy Mondloch, the executive director of Grassroots Leadership College is asking people to pack their sleeping bags and come to the capitol. Mondloch says they're staying until the bill is stopped.
