President-elect Barack Obama is considering an aid package to the states, aimed at putting people to work on a host of construction projects by next spring.

Doyle says the Badger State's procurement rules will have to be shortened but there must still be safeguards to ensure the integrity of every contract.

Wisconsin has identified $3.7 billion in highway, school, environmental and other public works projects that can start within 120 days after a federal stimulus plan is approved.
