Northern Legislators to Host Budget Listening Sessions April 11th

Bewley and Milroy will gather public input in Spooner and Cumberland


State Senator Janet Bewley (D-Mason) and State Representative Nick Milroy (D-South Range) will hold listening sessions April 11th on Governor Walker’s proposed 2015-2017 state budget.  The sessions will be held at the UW Agricultural Research Station in Spooner in the morning and at the Cumberland High School Library 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 the most important public policy legislators will consider during the next two years and it is essential that 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 Milroy at
