I had the pleasure of meeting with students from Career and Technical Student Organizations today. They are bright lights for Wisconsin's future!

2017-2019 Budget Process Begins

The state budget is the most comprehensive bill the Legislature passes during the biennium. It is the legislative document that sets the level of authorized state expenditures for the next fiscal biennium and the corresponding level of revenues projected to be available to finance those expenditures. The budget bill affects all state agencies and involves significant interplay between the executive and legislative branches.

Governor Walker introduced his proposed 2017-2019 Budget on Wednesday afternoon.  Here is my statement:

Our state’s finances are on solid footing. We are in a great position to invest in priorities like education and transportation, while delivering additional tax relief for hardworking Wisconsin families.  I look forward to working with my colleagues and our legislative service agencies to scrutinize the dollars and details in the Governor’s proposed spending plan so the final package provides the best possible return on investment for Wisconsin families.

Extensive information and links related to the proposed Executive Budget are available here.

Work Permit Bill Receives Public Hearing

I am pleased to report that Assembly Bill 25 which would eliminate the work permit requirement for 16 and 17 year old teens received a public hearing in the Assembly Committee on Labor yesterday. We had great testimony from former foster youth, social/human services professionals, employers and others - a broad base of strong support!  Read more here.

I was pleased to attend the Disability Employment Summit and Take Your Legislator to Work Alumni Reception at the State Capitol. Legislators heard from a panel of successful employers and employees about the benefits of hiring people with disabilities, as well as how job opportunities increase independence and quality of life.

Dept. of Transportation Audit Report

The much-anticipated audit report of the State Highway Program was recently released. The Legislature’s Joint Audit Committee is expected to hold a hearing on the audit within the next several weeks.  There will likely be robust discussion regarding the best ways to help the Department of Transportation maximize the use of taxpayer dollars.
