Walker says he’d call special session on jobs

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Republican gubernatorial candidate Scott Walker says if elected he will call an emergency session of the Legislature on his first day in office to cut taxes, find government waste and spur job creation.

Walker announced his plans Monday at a manufacturing company in Green Bay.

Walker said he would push a series of measures in the special session to cut taxes on small businesses, repeal a tax on Health Savings Accounts, curb frivolous lawsuits and reform the state Department of Commerce.

Walker said he would also immediately convene a task force charged with finding government waste.

He didn’t have an exact estimate on how much his proposals would cost. He faces Democrat Tom Barrett in the Nov. 2 election.
