The expansion of the state-federal program has allowed 11 million lower-income Americans to gain health coverage. Walker, a Republican-turned-independent, said in a statement Thursday that he is still reviewing the Senate plan, but had some worries about how it might affect his vast and sparsely populated state, where health care costs are high.

This image provided by Gleason Partners LLC shows a rendering of precast border wall that incorporates solar panels into the design and that is 24-feet tall. President Donald Trump wants to add solar panels to his long-promised southern border wall - a plan he says would help pay for the wall's construction and add to its aesthetic appeal. The idea also was proposed by one of the companies that submitted a design to the government as a border wall prototype. The bid by Las Vegas-based Gleason Partners LLC proposed covering some sections of the wall with solar panels to provide electricity for lighting, sensors and patrol stations along the wall. Gleason said sales of electricity to utilities could cover the cost of construction in 20 years or less, and suggested that power could also be sold to Mexico. (Gleason Partners LLC via AP)
