MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker has signed into law a pair of bills designed to help students who are pursuing a technical college education.

One bill Walker signed provides incentive grants to school districts that promote career and technical education programs. The grants of up to $1,000 per school district will be available starting next school year.

The other bill Walker signed provides scholarships to full time students at technical colleges. Between one and six scholarships worth $2,250 will be available at each school.

Both measures passed the Legislature unanimously earlier this year. Walker signed the bills in Eau Claire.

State Superintendent Tony Evers had proposed the incentives last year and thanked Walker for signing the bills into law.
