Scott Walker is imploring state senators to visit a Kimberly-Clark plant that’s slated to close if the Legislature doesn’t approve a tax incentive package that could cost up to $100 million.

Kimberly-Clark has given a Sept. 30 deadline for the Senate to vote on the incentive bill that’s already cleared the Assembly.
