Walker to tour state to get ideas for next budget

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker plans to launch a tour across Wisconsin to gather ideas about what should be prioritized in his next state budget and legislative agenda for next year.

Walker announced his "Talk with Walker Tour" on Monday and also launched a web video discussing it. In an interview with The Associated Press, Walker says the goal is to get people involved in the process of his putting together his agenda for next year.

Walker has already said he will be focused on five areas next year. Those include creating jobs, developing the workforce, education and government reforms and investing in roads, railways and other infrastructure needs.

Walker will introduce the next two-year budget in February.
