The Joint Finance Committee held two of the six listening sessions on the budget this week, with the third session taking place today in Berlin, WI. Additionally, legislators have held many of their own listening sessions in their districts to hear feedback on the state budget. Your comments and concerns greatly help to shape the budget process.
A decision was made this week to remove 83 items from the state budget that are non-fiscal policy so they can be properly vetted through our standing committees as legislation. It is important to ensure that the public can have a say in these 83 non-fiscal policy items.

I would appreciate your continued feedback on the state budget. You can do so by contacting our office or by filling out my survey which can be found on my website here.
