Gov.-elect Scott Walker has asked Gov. Jim Doyle's administration to immediately stop many of its top initiatives.
In a letter to Department of Administration Secretary Daniel Schooff, Walker urged the current administration to freeze implementation of the federal health care law and suspend contract negotiations with state employees. He also requested it stop making any permanent hires, transform Charter Street Power Plant into a natural gas boiler (instead of the planned biofuel boiler) and delay any new administrative rules until after he takes office on Jan. 3.
"I am confident we can find common ground on my five requests and continue to work towards an orderly transition," Walker wrote.
