MADISON (WKOW) -- A new audit says Wisconsin has not spent any of the $400,000 set aside for Governor Walker's program aimed at boosting literacy and early childhood education.
The Wisconsin State Journal says the Read to Lead Development Fund is to provide grants to school boards and others to support programs that boost reading.
The Legislative Audit Bureau report shows the fund was approved by the Legislature in 2011. In April 2012, the fund was established.
Walker spokeswoman Julie Lund says the project is an "ongoing initiative." Lund says many other pieces of it are under way, but there is no deadline on the project.
