Walker outlines priorities in California speech

MADISON (AP) -

Gov. Scott Walker continues to shed more light on what his legislative agenda will look like next year.

Walker used a speech Friday night at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Foundation in California to talk about his plans to pursue tax cuts, expand the voucher school program and tie higher education funding to meeting certain benchmarks.

The Wisconsin State Journal on Monday reported (http://bit.ly/SGG5jA ) that the reception to Walker's California speech back home was mixed.

Incoming Assembly Speaker Robin Vos says Walker's message is consistent with what Republicans have been saying for months they want to do.

But Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chris Larson says the speech shows Walker has no plans to moderate his message.
