Gov. Walker comes to Wausau to tout budget bill

Governor Scott Walker kicked off a statewide tour the day after giving his budget address to the legislature.

As part of the tour, the governor flew in to Wausau.

He repeated many of the same things he said during his budget address.

He stated his budget plan will provide more flexibility for local governments and savings for schools.

The governor also said that government needs to get control of spending, stating that future state leaders shouldn't face these kinds of difficulties.

"Today we say it is time for that to stop," Governor Walker said. "It is time for us to stop pushing the problem off for the future. The bills are due and they're due now, and we need to have the courage of our convictions to stand up and deal with it."

Governor Walker also traveled to Milwaukee and Green Bay during his first day of touring the state.
