MADISON, Wis. (AP) – Gov. Scott Walker’s beleaguered jobs-creation agency would have to meet a number of tough new requirements under a proposal that could be added to the state budget. Republicans are making the proposal Thursday. Under their plan, the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp. also could not spend any money in the second year of the state budget until it showed lawmakers that improvements had been made. The Joint Finance Committee plans to vote on imposing the new requirements in response to a scathing audit of WEDC released last week. Both Republicans and Democrats have called for WEDC to make drastic improvements in light of the audit. WEDC leaders say they are making improvements and are on the right path.
