 Rep. Rohrkaste Announces In-District Budget Listening Sessions

 Madison – Today, State Representative Mike Rohrkaste (R-Neenah) announced a series of in-district listening sessions focusing on the state’s 2015-17 biennial budget.

Recently, Governor Walker released his proposal for the State of Wisconsin’s upcoming two-year budget.  With the budget now before the legislature, Rep. Rohrkaste will be holding a series of budget listening sessions around the 55th Assembly District to gain feedback from his constituents.

“In his budget proposal, Governor Walker laid a foundation for the legislature to build on,” said Rep. Rohrkaste.  “At this stage, it is very important for legislators to understand the budget concerns of the people from our districts.  I am very interested in hearing the views of my constituent’s here in the Fox Cities and I encourage them to attend.  Anyone who cannot attend a session is welcome to contact me by phone, email, or letter.”  The state budget is currently being reviewed by the Joint Committee on Finance and the legislature.
