SUPERIOR - Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker continues to build off his state of the state address by making a number of visits across the state.
Thursday, Walker flew into Superior, laying out priorities he'd like to focus on this legislative session, like creating more jobs and developing the workforce.
That includes a push to bring mining back to northwestern Wisconsin.
"If there's any state in America that should be able to move forward with a process to streamline safe and environmentally sound mining, certainly it should be the Badger State," said Walker.
Walker says any mining project could bring more than 3,000 construction jobs, as well an additional 2,800 mining–related jobs.
