Shilling Says There Has To Be Order In Madison
Governor Scott Walker gave his state of the state address last night....and he fought through some tough voices in the balcony.

Shilling says she was upset that for the second year in a row, the Governor failed to recognize the $59 billion agriculture industry and the needs of rural communities.
