Finance committee buckles down to budget work
The Wisconsin Legislature's Joint Committee on Finance has held its hearings and begun the job of rewriting Gov. Scott Walker's two-year budget proposal, said Senator Sheila Harsdorf (R-River Falls).
Harsdorf, serving on the committee for the fourth time in her legislative career, said the 16-member panel began budget work April 26 and will continue to meet every Tuesday and Thursday until it finishes.
Most of the Legislature's work on budget is done in Joint Finance.
