    I thought conservatives believed in minimal intervention in the economy. What exactly does he see the state doing in response to slightly more accurate employment data? Emergency tax cuts? Emergency cuts to state and local workers paychecks? Emergency grandstanding regarding federal policy?

    I mean... He's already passed emergency anti-union measures and emergency redistricting... He didn't need this new system to see the "urgency" there!

    Walker said Tuesday that gap makes it difficult to use those numbers for making quick responses to the state's employment needs. He says he is moving forward with a real-time labor management system so the state can react to job needs better.
