The deadline for the state senate to vote on a Kimberly-Clark incentive package is on Sunday, but state Senate leaders say it's unlikely to happen on time.

Governor Scott Walker has urged the Senate to come together and vote on the package that could cost taxpayers up to $100 million.

That's an effort to save the plant in Fox Crossings, where about 500 people work.

That's the district of State Senator Roger Roth.

He hopes the state can get more time.

"We know how important Kimberly-Clark is, and we're just asking them for a little flexibility so that we can come in in November and get this passed," Roth said.

Roth added that there are no Democrats in the Senate that are willing to come forward.
