MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Gov. Scott Walker is avoiding hot button issues or getting into details about proposals he has announced in his State of the State speech.

Walker delivered a brief 25-minute speech on Tuesday, and called on the Legislature to pass a school accountability bill, merge four state agencies into two and ensure schools aren’t required to enact Common Core academic standards.

But Walker didn’t say what he wants the school bill to include. And he didn’t say how many jobs would be affected by the mergers, or what savings there would be. And schools aren’t currently required to adopt the Common Core standards now, so it’s not clear what he would propose there.

And Walker didn’t say anything about how he’s going to balance the budget.

That plan comes next month.
