MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Gov. Scott Walker says he’s looking at consolidating or making “major changes” at six or seven state agencies.

Walker talked in general about his ideas for merging state government operations on Wednesday after speaking to Senate Republicans.

Walker says he doesn’t think a special session will be necessary to do that, but he does hope the Legislature will act quickly on the ideas early on. He says he learned from the creation of public-private economic development agency that it’s better to have more time to transition into something new than not.

The Wisconsin Economic Development Corp. was best with problems after Walker created it in 2011, many of which were attributed to it being launched too quickly.
