UWP to host joint finance hearing
PLATTEVILLE - Residents of southwest Wisconsin will have the opportunity to voice their opinions on the Governor's 2003-05 Biennial Budget Bill-Senate Bill 44, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday, April 8, at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville Center for the Arts (CFA) building.
The Joint Committee on Finance is holding a number of public hearings throughout the state, providing Wisconsin residents with a venue to express any concerns or issues regarding the budget bill.
"This is an opportunity to see our government in action," said Barbara Daus, special assistant to the Chancellor at UWP. "People don't need to feel obligated to testify. They can just come and observe and listen."
The 16 members of the Joint Committee on Finance, consisting of both democratic and republican representatives and senators, are scheduled to attend the hearing. Also in attendance will be representatives of the Legislative Fiscal Bureau. Participants and attendees of the hearing will be asked to register at the hearing. Parking will be available in the CFA parking lot for those attending the hearing. The lot will be closed to campus that day.
