JFC Schedules Agency Budget Briefings, Starting March 19
The Joint Finance Committee (JFC) announced this morning that it will begin meeting next Tuesday, March 19, to hear from the heads of selected state agencies. The JFC schedule calls for four days of agency briefings, running from the 19th through the 26th.
In contrast to the public hearings, which are expected to start in early April, all of the briefings will be Madison (in the JFC meeting room — 412 East). The agency briefings are open to the public, but public testimony isn’t allowed.
Here’s the briefing schedule and some of the highlights:
- Tuesday, March 19 (10 a.m.) – Departments of Administration, Revenue, and Workforce Development
- Wednesday, March 20 (9 a.m.) – Department of Agriculture (DATCP), DHS, DOT, and the WI Economic Development Corporation
- Thursday, March 21 (9 a.m.) – DPI, Tech. College System, UW System, and Dept. of Corrections
- Tuesday, March 26 (10 a.m.) – Departments of Children and Families, and Natural Resources
We’ll follow up with the public hearing dates and locations once those have been scheduled.
