Plans by Governor Scott Walker to open five regional juvenile corrections facilities do have legislative support, but some lawmakers don't want to wait.

Walker said his plan would be budgeted for 2019. Two Democrats said Friday they are working on a bill to speed things up. State Representatives Joel Kleefish and David Bowen say a plan to change Wisconsin's juvenile corrections could be heard and approved by committees, passed by the legislature and signed into law by the governor this legislative session. Some Republicans say they have concerns about being too hasty.
