Walker optimistic about Kimberly-Clark tax incentive bill

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker says he's "cautiously optimistic" about discussions on a tax incentive package to prevent the closing of a Kimberly-Clark plant in Fox Crossing.

Walker says he hopes he'll have "something positive to announce" later Monday after he gets an update from state lawmakers about negotiations over the weekend.

The governor wants lawmakers to approve a tax incentive package that could cost up to $100 million.

Sunday was the deadline Kimberly-Clark gave the Senate to vote on the incentive bill that's already cleared the Assembly. But there aren't enough Republican votes to pass the bill, meaning it would take an unknown number of Democratic votes to approve it.

About 500 people work at the plant in Fox Crossing. Kimberly-Clark is also closing a nearby plant that employs about 110 people.
