Dems Holding Press Conferences As Budget Voting Begins
Representative Steve Doyle speaking with Democrat Jill Billings this morning outside of Irving Pertsch Elementary School in Onalaska. They were joined by western Wisconsin school superintendents, school board members, teachers, support staff, parents and students. The topic? How to address the statewide voucher expansion and how it will affect local school districts.
The event was one of many occurring around the state today, in which legislators and local leaders are speaking about the severe impacts statewide voucher expansion would have on public education in Wisconsin. This comes a day before voting begins on the state budget.
