MADISON — Gov. Scott Walker says the Wisconsin National Guard is prepared to respond if there is any unrest among state employees in the wake of his announcement that he wants to take away nearly all collective bargaining rights.

Walker said today that he hasn't called the Guard into action, but he has briefed them and other state agencies in preparation of any problems.  

Walker says he has every confidence that state employees will continue to show up for work and do their jobs. But he says he's been working on contingency plans for months just in case they don't.  

Walker says he's not anticipating any problems.  

His plan would require higher pension and health insurance contributions and remove bargaining rights except in a limited way over wages.
