Gov. Walker still wants plan to save Kimberly-Clark plant

PEWAUKEE, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker says he's going to do everything in his power to save a Kimberly-Clark factory and about 300 jobs after a tax incentive bill failed in the Legislature.

The Republican governor said Tuesday that saving the factory is his top priority before he leaves office and that he hopes he can announce a plan in a few days. Walker is working with the state's economic development agency on a proposal that may not need legislative approval.

Walker wanted the state Senate to vote on the bill during its lame-duck session last week. But Republicans who control the Senate couldn't get enough votes.

Kimberly-Clark officials have said they will close the plant without the earlier proposed tax incentives that could reach as high as $100 million.
