Walker says ‘America's Dairyland' will not be removed from license plates

Walker says ‘America's Dairyland'...

MADISON, Wis. - Gov. Scott Walker told Pam Jahnke, the Fabulous Farm Babe, that “America’s Dairyland” will not be removed from the state’s license plates.

Rep. Scott Allen (R-Waukesha) said two weeks ago that he's circulating a bill to redesign the Wisconsin license plate, removing "America's Dairyland" and replacing it with something that would represent to "reflect who we are, not who we were."

Walker said agriculture and manufacturing are the bread and butter of Wisconsin’s economy.

“When you look a good part of our emerging food processing business, it’s the combination of both – agriculture and manufacturing coming together,” Walker said. “So, we’re not going to change our plates. We’re going to continue to grow and prosper. There are many different industries, but our bread and butter, literally and figuratively, is still agriculture and manufacturing together.” 

Allen said sections of Wisconsin's economy, like technology industries, are left out of the current plate design.
