MILWAUKEE – Wisconsin Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald and Minority Leader Jennifer Shilling will be the featured guests of an upcoming “On the Issues with Mike Gousha,” Friday, April 10, from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. in Eckstein Hall, 1215 W. Michigan St.

Shilling and Fitzgerald will give their views on state budget deliberations, spending and policy priorities. From funding for education to plans for a new arena in downtown Milwaukee, Fitzgerald and Shilling will offer insight into what a final two-year spending plan might look like and what it could mean for residents of the state.

Shilling, a Democrat from La Crosse County, is a former state representative who was elected to the Wisconsin State Senate in a special election in 2011. Fitzgerald, a Republican from Dodge County, was first elected to the Senate in 1994.

Seating is limited; registration is available online. For those who can’t attend in person, a “watch now” button on the registration page will provide access to a live video stream.

Gousha, an award-winning television journalist, is the Law School’s distinguished fellow in law and public policy. His “On the Issues” series of conversations with newsmakers supports Marquette Law School’s commitment to serve as a modern-day public square for the city of Milwaukee, the state of Wisconsin and beyond.

Through the Marquette Law School Poll, debates featuring candidates in significant political races, public lectures by leading scholars and topical conferences — all open to the community — the Law School serves as a venue for serious civil discourse about law and public policy matters.
