Governor Scott Walker and some Democratic lawmakers are pushing separate plans to save hundreds of paper-making jobs in the Fox Valley.

  Three legislators and Outagamie County Executive Tom Nelson want the Legislature to create a Papermaker Fund.  Walker's approach would increase job retention tax credits for Kimberly-Clark from seven percent to the 17 percent being offered for the Foxconn project in Mount Pleasant.  Six hundred workers would lose their jobs under the company's plans to close two of its facilities.
