National Guard could Respond to Unrest, as State Employees Learn of his Budget Proposal
However, if there is worker unrest, Governor Walker says the Wisconsin National Guard is prepared to respond.
The governor revealed Friday that he wants the state Legislature to go into Special Session next week to take up his plan to close a budget deficit. His plan calls for workers to lose nearly all their collective bargaining rights. State employees also would be required to pay more for pension and health care benefits.
