MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says he'll commit an additional $100,000 to help support Hispanic-owned businesses.

Walker says the money from the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp. would help expand the revolving loan fund at the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. WEDC made an initial seed investment of $100,000 in 2012 to help establish the loan program.

Walker says the investment is part of a plan to support businesses and job growth.

The Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Wisconsin creates, expands, and diversifies small and Hispanic-owned businesses, with a focus in the Milwaukee area.
