Upcoming Joint Finance Committee Hearings – A Great Opportunity to Provide Input!

Disability Rights Wisconsin encourages people to share their thoughts about how the current budget proposal impacts people with disabilities and their families. Joint Finance Committee hearings provide an opportunity to testify before legislators who will make spending decisions on items like Medicaid, special education, transportation, mental health, long term care, corrections, local funding and more.

The Legislature’s Joint Finance Committee has scheduled these upcoming hearings:

  • Monday, April 11 Milwaukee area (10 am – 6 pm) Wisconsin State Fair Park: Expo Center, Hall A – 8200 W. Greenfield Ave, West Allis WI
  • Wed, April 13 in Neenah (10 a.m. to 6 p.m.) at the Pickard Civic Auditorium (1275 Tullar Road, Neenah).

See the entry on this web site titled: State Budget Resources and Budget Presentation You can Use for information on how the budget affects people with disabilities.
