Budget Public Hearing at State Fair Park
This week, the Joint Committee on Finance held three public hearings. On Monday, we were in Platteville, on Wednesday we visited West Allis, and we ended the week on Friday in Berlin. The turnout has been impressive.
As of today, more than 700 people made their voice heard on the governor's budget proposal. I was very p
roud to see my constituent Jesse Pennington-Cross bravely testify in front of so many people! Above you can see a picture of Jesse talking in front of hundreds of people - and our reaction.
Jesse talked about the importance of mental health funding for our schools. Thanks Jesse!
If you were not able to attend, don't worry more hearings are scheduled in a couple weeks. We will be visiting Spooner, Ellsworth, and Marinette the week of April 17th. For more details visit here.
Please stop by and make your voice heard! If you can't make it, you can still submit testimony to BudgetComments@legis.wisconsin.gov.
