Governor Walker mum on potential budget changes


Governor Scott Walker says it's too soon to support or oppose some of the major changes made to his budget.

The governor made those comments in Wausau Tuesday.

The latest version of the state budget includes a plan to allow several companies to provide software to Wisconsin schools. This has given Stevens Point software company Skyward, new life.

As it reverses a plan that would have kept Skyward from selling its software in Wisconsin. But the governor's not ready to show his hand.

"In our case we'll take a look at it, I've announced a number of things that we've added or subtracted from the budget, I'm not going to make any announcements on vetoes or non-vetoes until after the full legislature takes that on but it's certainly something we've heard a lot about we'll certainly keep that in mind as we look at the final product," said Governor Scott Walker.

The state budget needs to pass the Full Assembly and State Senate before it goes to the governor for approval.
