Gov. Scott Walker comments on Obama's jobs agenda

CHIPPEWA FALLS (WKOW) -- Ahead of President Obama's jobs address, Governor Scott Walker said one way to help businesses add jobs is to ease government regulations.

Walker made the comments while touring a business in Chippewa Falls.

Walker said a company in Manitowoc wanted to expand its plant, but it was nearly held up by the Environmental Protection Agency.

"The biggest barrier was for two months, they were stuck dealing with the EPA, and it almost blocked them from adding jobs here in the state of Wisconsin. The president needs to step up and figure out a way his administration can reign in out of control agencies like the EPA so we can create more jobs in Wisconsin and across the country," Walker said.

Walker said he's looking forward to working with the state legislature on job creation legislation this fall.
