Bewley and Meyers to Host Budget Listening Sessions April 18th

Northern Legislators seek public comment in Phillips and Mercer


State Senator Janet Bewley (D-Mason) and State Representative Beth Meyers (D-Bayfield) will hold listening sessions April 18th on Governor Walker’s proposed 2015-2017 state budget.  The sessions will be held at the Phillips Public Library in the morning and at the Mercer Community Center in the afternoon.  The Northern Lawmakers are holding these sessions to give local residents an opportunity to make their voices heard.

These listening sessions are open to the public and the lawmakers urge any citizen concerned about the impact this budget could have on their community to participate.  “The state budget is one of the most important pieces of legislation that we will consider during the next two years.  It is essential that the citizens of the North be given a chance to offer their views and influence its outcome,” the lawmakers stated.

If anyone is unable to attend but would still like to submit testimony they can do so by emailing Senator Bewley at, or Representative Meyers at
