Push to Revisit Shared Revenue Plans

Push to Revisit Shared Revenue Plans

One Wisconsin Democrat is already looking to change how much state money some local communities get.

State Representative Sue Conley from Janesville wants to create a new shared revenue advisory council. She hopes the council can meet after each census, which means every 10 years, to see if there need to be adjustments to Wisconsin’s shared revenue formula. Conley says cities like Janesvile are stuck with a large need for money, but low property values. Wisconsin lawmakers just reworked its shared revenue formula last spring to send more state money to local governments across the state.
