Gov. Evers, Lt. Gov. Barnes Hear from More Than 300 Wisconsinites at Virtual Budget Listening Session
Next virtual budget listening session on environment, infrastructure, and the economy to occur Dec.
MADISON — Gov. Tony Evers and Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes heard from 345 Wisconsinites at a virtual budget listening session last Tues., Nov. 17, 2020, about their priorities for the upcoming 2021-23 biennial budget. This was the first of four virtual budget listening sessions and was focused on healthcare and public health. A recording of the event is available here.
“The budget is perhaps the most important policy document we have and it’s a reflection of our priorities and our values as a state,” said Gov. Evers. “The bottom line is that this isn’t my budget— it’s the People’s Budget. That’s why these listening sessions are so important to ensure that we are working together to build a state that works for everyone.”
The next virtual budget listening session is scheduled for Wed., Dec. 2, 2020, at 6 p.m. and will cover the environment, infrastructure, and the economy. A full schedule of the listening sessions is available below and on the governor’s website here. Wisconsinites are welcome to submit comments at any time here.
