MINNEAPOLIS - Governor Scott Walker sat down for a one-on-one interview with KARE 11.
Walker says he is done playing defense with his controversial law limiting bargaining rights. But the law still faces numerous challenges. A judge threw out parts of the law last Friday and at least one union is demanding new contract talks.
"Most people in the public regardless of what party, kind of feel like it's over. The last few months it's been nice in Wisconsin. The people have gotten back to their own lives," he said.
While the future of the law is unclear, the Governor argues its results aren't.
"It's working financially. It also has helped bring some certainty and stability in a state that once had an employment rate above 9 percent. Now this year (it) dropped down to the lowest unemployment rate since 2008 so it's helping improve the economy. It's certainly put our fiscal house in order," he said.
