Walker: expand Act 10 to include police, fire unions

CREATED Jul. 31, 2013

GREEN BAY, WI --Governor Walker says he'd be open to expanding Act 10 to include police and fire unions.

The controversial law limited most collective bargaining powers for most public employees.

Police and fire unions were exempted from the reforms.

"I think a lot of the people that predicted more negative outcomes for public employees in other areas, That just didn't materialize and its been good for the public employees at both a state and a local level," said Gov. Scott Walker.

State republican legislators say as of right now there is no bill on the table or plans to bring up an Act 10 expansion.
