Governor-elect Tony Evers, Lt. Governor-elect Mandela Barnes and their transition teams have announced budget listening sessions throughout Wisconsin this week and next. We encourage local Leagues and individual members to take the opportunity to speak about what priorities they have for the 2019-2020 state budget.
LWVWI is preparing a statement for local League leaders to present on behalf of the state League. We will share the statement on our website as a reference for anyone to use.
