JFC to hold Milwaukee-area budget hearing on Wednesday (April 10)

The Legislature’s budget-writing Joint Finance Committee will hold the second of four scheduled public hearings on the proposed 2019-21 state budget next Wednesday (April 10) in Oak Creek.

The location for the hearing is the:

Oak Creek Community Center
8580 South Howell Avenue
Oak Creek, WI  53154

(View map)

The hearing is scheduled to run from 10 am to 5 pm but may go longer if people are still waiting to testify.  Although no one will be allowed to register to speak after 5pm, the hearing will continue until everyone who registered by 5 pm is allowed to speak.

Dan Rossmiller will be on hand to help board members register to testify and to answer questions.

We strongly encourage board members and administrators to attend and testify.  This is your chance to speak out on issues such as increasing special education categorical aid, restoring annual per pupil adjustments to revenue limits indexed to inflation (CPI), and promoting revenue limit equity (through additional increases to the low revenue ceiling), among others.  

(Note: The next budget hearing after Wednesday’s hearing will be held in River Falls (Far Western Wisconsin) on Monday, April 15.)
