National Governor's Association Summer Meeting begins


by Chris Patterson

MILWAUKEE -- Governors from around the country are in Milwaukee for the 105th National Governors Association Summer Meeting. We're told this conference won't get political, because governors are in Milwaukee to exchange ideas and practices. 

Governors will spend a lot of time speaking about implementing opportunities for employers to employ people with disabilities.

Friday night finished with a gathering at the Harley-Davidson Museum. Walker along with seven sitting governors rode into the museum on motorcycles.

Walker thanked everyone for coming and hoped they enjoy Milwaukee.

With the one year anniversary of the Sikh Temple mass shooting right around the corner, Governor Scott Walker was asked about strategies to prevent future mass shootings. He believes prevention efforts should focus on mental health treatment.

Affordable health care is another topic Governor Walker plans to discuss this weekend. He told reporters there's no need for individual counties to vie for federal health care dollars, because his budget has addressed everyone's health care needs.

Governor Walker hopes this conference will lead to more tourism and conferences in the City of Milwaukee.
