3-3-15 wisconsin budget

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The Legislature’s finance committee is about to kick off a months-long push to revise Gov. Scott Walker’s 2015-17 state budget proposal.  The committee is set to begin Monday with briefings from a number of state agencies on how the budget would affect them. First up are the Administration, Justice and Corrections departments.  Additional agencies are expected to address the committee through Wednesday.  The committee likely will then hold a number of public hearings on the budget around the state before returning to Madison and beginning revisions. That work is expected to take months.  When the committee is done it will forward the spending plan to the full Senate and Assembly for votes. From there it goes back to Walker, who has the power to veto changes.
