PLEASANT PRAIRIE, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker says the state's new two-year, $70 billion spending plan is "a great budget" for the "hardworking taxpayers of Wisconsin."

Walker is speaking at Catalyst Exhibits in Pleasant Prairie before signing the state budget.

He says the budget holds the line on property taxes and invests more in education and workforce development.

Walker also says the state is in better shape than it was four years ago. He says instead of a looming deficit, it will have a more than $500 million surplus when the new fiscal year starts Monday.
