Wisconsin lawmakers will begin their work on the state budget this week.
The budget-writing Joint Finance Committee will hold its first public hearing Wednesday in Waukesha. Its one of four that will help craft the state’s new two-year spending plan. After the hearing in Waukesha, lawmakers will be in Eau Claire and the Wisconsin Dells next week, and in Minocqua in the last week of the month. Lawmakers will then return to Madison and draw-up a new budget that they will deliver to the governor some time next month.
