Gov. Walker coy about signing Indian moniker bill

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Governor Scott Walker has not said whether he'll sign a bill making it harder to order Wisconsin schools to drop their Indian team names and mascots. 

The Republican Walker was asked about the subject Thursday. He said it was, "not on my radar." 

The Senate gave final legislative approval to the Republican measure on Tuesday, after the Assembly okayed the same bill last month. 

It would water down a complaint process approved by Democrats in 2009 that resulted in three school districts being ordered to drop their Indian monikers. 

Some others dropped their names voluntarily, to avoid going through the complaint process.
