From AFSCME, http://www.wiafscme.org/:

The legislature’s budget committee will be holding four hearings only. Here’s the schedule:

March 18 – Brillion High School, Endries Performing Arts Center, W1101 County Road HR, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.

March 20 – Milwaukee, Alverno College, Pitman Theatre, 3400 South 43rd St., 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.

The above hearings give you a chance to speak directly to the committee members who will be making most of the budget decisions for the legislature.
