Gov. Scott Walker is imploring state senators to return to the capitol, and vote on a bill that would provide $100 million in tax incentives to Kimberly-Clark. The company says it will close one of its plants in the Fox Valley if the Senate doesn't approve the incentives by the end of the month. 

The Assembly passed the incentives in February, but the bill stalled in the Senate because there wasn't enough Republican support. WUWM's Marti Mikkelson talked about the issue with JR Ross of wispolitics.com, for this week's "Capitol Notes" conversation. Ross says the chances of the Senate coming back are slim.
