WAUSAU - Democratic lawmakers hosted a listening session on the state budget Saturday. The listening session was held in the Marathon County Public Library.

Democratic representatives heard from central Wisconsin residents on a number of topics.

 "It was really helpful to hear from people advocating for investing in healthcare, education, our roads, making sure our infrastructure is well-funded and sustainable. And so we just really enjoyed the opportunity to hear from people in Central Wisconsin about the budget," said Rep. Katrina Shankland (D - Stevens Point).

The people of Wisconsin are not the only ones concerned about road funding according to Representative Katrina Shankland.

Shankland says legislators on both sides of the aisle are frustrated by a "lack of sustainable road funding in the Governor's budget."

Shankland urges people to let their representatives know what questions or concerns they have about the state budget.
