Gov. Scott Walker is launching a tour across Wisconsin to gather ideas about what should be prioritized in his next state budget and legislative agenda for next year.

Green Bay on Tuesday is the first stop in the "Talk with Walker Tour" the governor announced on Monday. He is scheduled to be in La Crosse later in the week with other stops in the works for Eau Claire, Wausau and the Milwaukee area.

Walker tells The Associated Press in a Monday interview that the goal is to get people involved in the process of his putting together his agenda for next year.

Walker has already said he will be focusing on creating jobs, developing the workforce, education and government reforms and investing in roads, railways and other infrastructure needs.
