MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Gov. Scott Walker isn't making any changes to his leadership team heading into his second term.
Walker on Tuesday released the names of his cabinet secretaries, and there were no changes from those who currently hold the positions. Walker had said in November that he would be making some "tweaks" to those who lead state agencies, including new secretaries and their assistants.
But if those changes are coming, Walker isn't announcing them yet.
Walker said Tuesday that in coming months, he will be proposing merging operations and reducing the number of state agencies.
Walker last month said he is looking at shuffling duties at the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation, the Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority, the Department of Safety and Professional Services and the Department of Financial Institutions.
