MADISON (PRESS RELEASE) -
Today Governor Walker issued the following statement on Congress's approval of the St. Croix River Project.
"I commend the U.S. House of Representatives for voting in favor of the St. Croix River Project today. After decades of work, this bill is now going to the president's desk. This legislation was a top federal priority for my administration and is a great example of bipartisanship teamwork that will create thousands of jobs.
