Gov. Walker says layoff notices will go out as early as Friday

MADISON (AP) -- Gov. Walker says he'll start sending out layoff notices to state workers on Friday if his budget repair bill doesn't pass by then.

In an interview with The Associated Press on Thursday, he said he has to start this week so the state can achieve savings he envisioned under the bill starting in April.

It would be 31 days before the layoffs took effect and they could be revoked later.

Walker says he's negotiating with Senate Democrats who have remained out of state for weeks in an effort to stall the bill.

He says he won't concede on ending collecting bargaining rights for most state workers, but he may on others, according to the AP report.
