Walker reacts to Supreme Court rulings

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) -- The Wisconsin Supreme Court upheld Governor Walker's reforms in both Act 10 and the voter ID law. 

The governor issued a statement this morning in response to the SCOWIS affirmative rulings, "Act 10 has saved Wisconsin taxpayers more than $3 billion.  Today's ruling is a victory for those hard-working taxpayers."

He also stated, "Voter ID is a common sense of reform that protects the integrity of our elections.  People need to have confidence in our electoral process and to know their vote has been properly counted.  We look forward to the same result from the federal court of appeals."
