MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Gov. Scott Walker will sign a bill Monday that blocks local governments from requiring collective bargaining agreements on public projects.

The governor will sign the bill at AmeriLux International, a De Pere (duh PAIR) manufacturer of building materials.

The Republican-controlled Legislature easily passed the legislation this session despite opposition from Democrats, who called it another attack on unions.

Supporters of the bill say it gives non-union firms a better chance to bid on public projects, and gives local governments more options.
