Republican Scott Walker has been sworn in as Wisconsin's 45th governor at an inauguration ceremony in the state Capitol Rotunda.
In his inaugural address, Walker said raising taxes would only counter his efforts to grow the economy. He says instead of doing that, he will make "tough, but compassionate decisions" to balance the budget.
MADISON (WKOW) -- The new governor Scott Walker started out his first day of office with a prayer breakfast at the Monona Terrace.
It's part of a lineup of activities, including the Inaugural Kick-Off Rose Bowl Tailgate Party, A Wisconsin You Can Believe In Celebration Fundraiser, Official Inaugural Ceremony of Governor Scott Walker, and the Inaugural Ball.
Bishop Linda Lee of the Wisconsin Council of Churches and the Wisconsin Conference of the United Methodist Church offered words of welcome at the breakfast.
WKOW has team coverage of Walker's inauguration ceremony here on WKOW.com and on 27 News at 5, 6 & 6:30 p.m.
