Joint Committee on Finance Budget Hearing at Lake Delton

Lake Delton legislative hearing draws big crowd; 130 people testify on budget. (Juneau County Star-Times, 4/12/2013)

Joint Finance Committee members heard testimony on the following topics:
  • Future of the Circus World Museum in Baraboo, 
  • School funding (including proposed expansion of vouchers)
  • Health care
  • Anti-tobacco programs
  • Community-based program to offer non-violent offenders alternatives to the criminal justice system
Excerpt:  Many speakers from throughout the state said the voucher proposals would have the effect of taking resources away from public schools, and in the case of special education students, taking away the type of accountability that is required in public schools.
