Banner note: The following is from the Joint Finance Committee website. That page also has a link to a form where persons may submit comments to the committee without attending a hearing.
If you are planning on attending one of the public hearings, here are a few important things to note:
-The primary purpose of the public hearings will be to hear from Wisconsin citizens, while committee members may ask questions of speakers, it’s not meant to be a debate.
-Speakers (virtual and in-person) will be given two minutes to speak to make sure the committee is able to hear from everyone.
-We will be following the guidelines from local public health departments for the host location regarding masking, social distancing and room capacity.
-We ask that once you are done speaking, you exit the room so other individuals who haven’t had the chance to speak can do so.
