La Crosse (WEAU)-
Governor Scott Walker was visiting Authenticom Inc in La Crosse.

Authenticom Inc is a business that is creating 50 new jobs in the area, and with their expansion they are eligible for 230 thousand dollars in tax credits.

Walker was just in town announcing a program to help create jobs for technical colleges. He says he's pleased to be back in town again to announce the job creation.

"Yesterday we were here talking about jobs, talking about making a connection to jobs. It’s nice to now talk about a company that is specifically adding new jobs," said Walker.

Walker also made the announcement that the Department of Workforce Development released job numbers for the month of January. January’s numbers are up almost 16 thousand jobs in the private sector, and the unemployment rate is down to 6.9 percent.
