Walker said he'd use stimulus money to suspend state sales tax
A Republican who might run for governor next year says he'd use Wisconsin's federal economic stimulus cash a lot differently.
Scott Walker, who's now the Milwaukee County executive, says almost all of Wisconsin's share of $3.5 billion should be used to suspend the state sales tax beginning March 1.
Walker says it would give the average family an extra $3,000. And it might encourage folks from neighboring states to buy new cars and appliances in Wisconsin.
