MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Gov. Scott Walker is set to take the oath of office for his second term as the 45th governor of Wisconsin.

The Republican lawmaker will be inaugurated at a swearing-in ceremony at the Capitol in Madison at 11 a.m. on Monday. His sons will emcee the event.

Walker has said the first order of the state Legislature will be the passing of a new “school accountability” measure to keep parents updated on their child’s academic performance.

He has already begun working on the next two-year budget. Amid questions of a 2016 presidential bid, Walker has said he won’t make a decision until after the budget process is complete.
