How does Governor Walker spend his workdays?  Check out this interactive chart, developed by the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism.  The Center obtained Walker’s calendars through an open records request, then developed a database of all calendar entries.  The Center also breaks down the companies Walker met with and the donations made to Walker by each company, so you can get a sense of how money impacts access to Walker’s time.

Wausau Paper To Close Mill, Layoff 450 People

wisconsinforward:

Wausau Paper will be closing its historic mill in Brokaw, laying off about 450 people.  The mill first opened more than 100 years ago.

Meanwhile, Gov. Walker signed bills into law yesterday that:

  • Allow homeowners to use deadly force against trespassers 
  • Cap attorney fees 
  • Allow school officials to use standardized tests to discipline or fire teachers
  • Allow liquor sales to start at 6 a.m.

These new laws are the product of what Walker calls his “laser-focus” on jobs.
