Scott Walker to unveil welfare reform plan

MADISON, Wis. – Gov. Scott Walker is scheduled to make a major announcement on welfare reform Monday.

The Republican governor will travel to Milwaukee, Green Bay, Eau Claire and Madison. He will be joined in Madison by welfare reform pioneer, former Wisconsin Gov. Tommy Thompson.

The day begins at 9:30 a.m. at ResCare Workforce Services in Milwaukee. Next up, the Brown County Offices in Green Bay at 11:30 a.m., followed by the Eau Claire State Office Building at 1:50 p.m. and the State Capitol at 3:55 p.m.

Walker’s press office did not provide further details.

In his state of the state address earlier this month, Walker called on Wisconsin again to be a leader in welfare reform, continuing the work that Thompson began a generation ago.

“Rewarding work will be our top priority,” Walker said. “Here in Wisconsin, we are willing to help people who are down and out. But public assistance should be a trampoline, not a hammock.”
