MADISON, Wisconsin — The Legislature's finance committee will hold four regional public hearings for later this month to take comments on Gov. Scott Walker's 2015-17 budget proposal.

The panel will meet March 18 at Brillion High School; March 20 at Alverno College in Milwaukee; March 23 at the University of Wisconsin-Barron County; and March 26 at Reedsburg High School.

Rep. John Nygren, a Marinette Republican who serves as the committee's co-chairman, says the hearings will generally run from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. but could vary slightly according to each venue's availability.

Once the committee completes the hearings it will return to Madison and begin revising the budget line-by-line. When that work is done the committee will forward the budget to the full Assembly and Senate for votes.
