DRW Statement on the Budget Approved by Finance Committee

Wisconsin State Capitol

The Joint Committee on Finance has completed its work on the State Budget. Disability Rights Wisconsin has released a statement on the budget approved by the Joint Finance Committee, noting the positive investments for people with disabilities, and the missed opportunities to help people with disabilities to have healthy, active lives as contributing members of their communities. The budget now moves to the State Assembly and Senate for approval, with voting expected the week of June 24th. This is an important time to be in touch with your State Senator and Assembly Representative about your priorities for the state budget.
