MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The Legislature’s budget committee plans to examine Gov. Scott Walker’s proposal to cut funding for the popular SeniorCare prescription drug program.  The Joint Finance Committee was scheduled to hold a briefing Tuesday on the Department of Health Services budget. The panel is in the middle of three days of state agency briefings on Walker’s budget.  Walker wants to require that SeniorCare enrollees first sign up for the Medicare Part D prescription drug program and use state benefits under SeniorCare as a supplement. The cut could save the state $15 million over the next two years.  The Legislature rejected the same idea in 2011 under bipartisan opposition.
