Let Your Voice be Heard on the Upcoming Wisconsin State Budget

Posted on 4-17-2019

The Wisconsin Joint Finance Committee will hold a Budget Hearing from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm on April 24th in the Phoenix Room at UWGB.

This hearing provides Green Bay area residents the opportunity to share what they believe to be critical issues to be addressed in the upcoming budget.  

Governor Evers has submitted his proposed budget, and now the legislature, starting with the Joint Finance Committee, will make its own proposal.

The Joint Committee on Finance is a statutory, 16-member standing committee of the Wisconsin Legislature. The Committee’s primary responsibility is to serve as the principal legislative committee charged with the review of all state appropriations and revenues. 

Current members of the committee are: 

Senator Darling (Co-Chair)

Representative Nygren (Co-Chair)

Representative Loudenbeck (Vice-Chair)

Senator Olsen (Vice-Chair)

Senator Tiffany

Senator Marklein

Senator Stroebel

Senator LeMahieu

Senator Erpenbach

Senator Johnson

Representative Born

Representative Rohrkaste

Representative Katsma

Representative Zimmerman

Representative C. Taylor

Representative Goyke

Local municipalities are struggling to keep up with the rising costs of running local government, including the maintenance of roads, providing quality education for our children, providing clean drinking water, and waste removal.
