DRW Applauds Positive Budget Items for People with Disabilities

Wisconsin State Capitol

Disability Rights Wisconsin is encouraged by the comprehensive initiatives for people with disabilities in Governor Evers’ 2019-2021 Biennial Budget Proposal. “The Governor’s budget shows a strong commitment to people with disabilities,” stated Lea Kitz, Executive Director. “Governor Evers and Lieutenant Governor Barnes listened to people with disabilities and their families around the state and included many recommendations to enhance their lives by providing better education, supports and services, transportation, and medical and mental health care.”

DRW is partnering with the Wisconsin Board for People with Developmental Disabilities and The Arc Wisconsin to provide State Budget Trainings for the Disability Community around the state. Stay tuned for information about budget training dates and registration.
