MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Governor Scott Walker will talk to business leaders Wednesday about the state of Wisconsin's economy.
The Republican Walker will speak at a meeting put on by the Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce, the state's largest business group. About 450 executives will be on hand.
Walker's address comes on the second day of the federal government's partial shutdown -- as well as the second day of enrollments for the Obamacare health insurance exchange.
It also comes just a few days after Wisconsin was found to have the 34th lowest job growth during the year ending in March.
Last Friday, Walker said last year's effort to recall him is still affecting the job numbers -- and he expects them to be better when the complete year-end job totals come out next June.
