The Republicans who will write Wisconsin’s next state budget are not going to Milwaukee or Madison.
The budget-writing Joint Finance Committee yesterday released the schedule for their budget hearings. They will be in Waukesha, Eau Claire, the Dells, and Minocqua next month. The hearings are the beginning of the process to write the next state budget. After the public hearings, lawmakers will begin their work at the Capitol. They hope to have something for the governor to sign some time in May.
