WAUWATOSA, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker says he would support a measure to ensure that tax credits and other economic development incentives do not go to companies that outsource jobs.
Walker spoke Monday before a Wisconsin Economic Development Corp. meeting in Wauwatosa.
Walker has been criticizing Democratic challenger Mary Burke for profiting from outsourcing done by her family's company, Trek Bicycle Corp.
But campaign finance reports show Walker has received donations from multiple companies that outsourced jobs.
Democratic Rep. Peter Barca says he will propose that WEDC require companies receiving economic development incentives to let the organization know if they outsource jobs. He says he believes the incentives would then end given existing WEDC rules.
Walker says he needs to see the details of Barca's proposal, but he supports the idea in principle.
