MADISON, Wis. -

With Wisconsin bitterly divided, Republican Gov. Scott Walker is promising a more moderate agenda in the second half of his term.

Walker told the Wisconsin State Journal he plans to focus on the budget and job creation in the upcoming session. And he's predicting less political turbulence than his first two years as governor.

In an interview published Sunday, Walker said none of the legislation he supports this session will prompt massive protests like those that rocked the Capitol soon after he became governor in 2011 and unveiled a plan to all but end collective bargaining for most public workers.

Walker said his budget priorities will be job creation, workforce development, tax cuts, education reform and transportation infrastructure. His other legislative priorities include a mining bill and venture capital legislation.
