Madison, WI (NNCNOW.com) --- TIME is honoring Governor Scott Walker as one of their 100 most influential people in the world.
"I am certainly humbled by this honor, but being named to this list is not about me, this is about our bold reforms and what they have accomplished," Governor Walker said.
"Together, we turned a $3.6 billion deficit into a nearly $1 billion surplus, cut taxes by $2 billion, and helped the private sector create more than 100,000 jobs and nearly 17,000 new businesses," Walker added.
The list awards individuals based on their activism, innovation and achievement. The full list will be provided in the May 5 issue of TIME and can be found online by clicking here.
