Governor comes to Hudson to sign law advancing bridge project
Gov. Scott Walker came to Hudson Friday afternoon, June 24, to sign two bills into law.
Before a group of around 100 supporters in the Valley House north of the city, the governor signed a bill freeing the state to spend up to $225 million for construction of a new bridge over the St. Croix River south of Houlton and Stillwater, Minn.
The law eliminates a requirement that Wisconsin receive a federal grant of at least $75 million for the project before going forward with it.
