STATE GOVERNMENT AND POLITICAL ROUNDUP: Plans announced to reduce fraud in public assistance programs
Governor Scott Walker says new plans will be unveiled this week to reduce fraud in Wisconsin's public assistance programs. The Republican Walker says he's been alerted to problems exposed in recent weeks by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel plus quote, "other things that have come up since then." He didn't say what those things were -- and he did not indicate what reforms might be proposed. Walker said the Health Services Department would roll out the new measures.
