In the Works rulings on the Walk-O-Meter

Create 10,000 new businesses

Will "get government out of the way of employers ... who will then help Wisconsin create 250,000 jobs by 2015, and as we create those new jobs, we will be able to add 10,000 new businesses.”

Identify $300 million in waste, fraud and abuse in state budget and eliminate it

Will -- through Commission on Waste, Fraud and Abuse -- identify $300 million in savings. "By also taking advantage of savings that have already been publicly identified such as $22.5 million per year in Wisconsin Shares fraud and $66 million per year in excessive overtime, we can save at least $300 million per year."
