MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Newly released records show two of Republican Gov. Scott Walker’s international trips this year cost the state nearly $147,000.

Records the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation released late Friday afternoon show Walker’s trade mission to Europe in April cost $117,300. His trade mission to Canada in June cost $29,470.

According to the data, both trips came in under budget. The European trip was projected to cost $165,250 and the Canada trip $34,152.

Expenses on both trips included hotels, transportation, parking, telecommunications, hospitality gifts, networking events and meals.
