The Joint Finance Committee

I testified before the Wisconsin Legislature's Joint Finance Committee today.  The committee was in West Allis for one of its public hearings on the proposed state budget. 

The meeting room was packed.  I was able to follow Mayor Tom Barrett at the podium.  Speakers were given two minutes each.  I wish there would have been more time to provide feedback on a proposal that would cut district revenue in the amount of $166 million over the biennium. I trust, though, that the discussions will continue.  

My statement to the members of the committee can be found here.
