Walker wants to work with senators on transportation money

Posted:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker says he wants to work with Republican senators to find a solution to funding for road projects in Wisconsin that has led to a delay in some work.

Walker spoke to Republican state senators in the Capitol on Tuesday.

He also voiced his support for replacing the nonpartisan Government Accountability Board with a bipartisan panel, banning the sale of aborted fetal tissue and overhauling the state's 110-year-old civil service system.

Walker says he hopes at least "some portion" of $350 million set aside in the state budget for transportation projects can be tapped to continue road projects.

Walker's Department of Transportation last week announced it was delaying work on five major projects for two years.

Walker told senators he's willing to work with them on alternatives.
