MANITOWOC (WKOW) -- Governor Scott Walker is on another statewide campaign tour, touting the reforms he says have saved the state more than $1 billion.
In Manitowoc, Walker said many school districts and local governments have benefited from the collective bargaining law.
Later during an interview with our affiliate in Green Bay, Walker said he should have spent more time trying to explain the problems they were targeting with the collective bargaining law, before he took action.
"Usually politicians talk about things but never fix them. In our case, we tried to fix it up front and along the way we're going to continue to fix things. We're just going to spend more time talking with people in advance, explaining what the problems are and getting more people together so we can move our state forward. We don't want to go backwards. We want to move forwards," said Walker.
The governor said the savings are documented on his website, www.reforms.wi.gov.
