Lawmakers To Hold Budget Listening Session in Rhinelander

Democratic lawmakers are coming to Rhinelander this weekend to hear what people in northern Wisconsin think about the governor’s proposed budget.

State Senator John Erpenbach of Middleton sits on the Joint Finance Committee.  He says Saturday’s listening session is an opportunity to hear from citizens of both parties.                 

“So there’s all sorts of aspects to the budget that affect everybody in the state from one aspect or another. So we’re real curious to hear what people have to say about it, and any ideas that people have.”

Erpenbach says he’s particularly concerned about proposed cuts to the UW system and changes to the Natural Resources Board decision-making powers. 

The listening session is Saturday from 10-2 pm at Nicolet College in Rhinelander. 

There’s also a session in Wausau on Saturday.
