The Joint Finance Committee is meeting today to discuss several state agencies and departments, including the beleaguered Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation, Veteran’s Affairs, the Wisconsin Technical College System, and the Government Accountability Board. The committee will also consider Governor Scott Walker’s proposal to end residency requirements for municipal employees. A full list of today’s budget topics and papers is here.
The committee will meet next Monday and Wednesday, May 14 and 16. The Departments of Administration, Corrections, and Workforce Development are among the agencies on the agenda Monday. The committee will discuss the Departments of Administration, Revenue, Natural Resources, and Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection along with the Offices of Secretary of State and Treasurer on Wednesday.
Action on the University of Wisconsin System has not been scheduled, but Governor Scott Walker is expected to announce an errata to his original request for UW System in the next few days.
