However, we know that the JFC will likely start conducting hearings on many of the departmental budgets that affect the issues we follow closely on this site. As a result, we are updating our different issue pages with more thorough information regarding each program. The information contained on each issue page will more closely resemble the format of previous Wisconsin State Budget Impact on Women and Girls reports (see here for the 2013-2015 report on the Governor's proposed budget). These new issue sections will contain much of the same existing information that was already on each page, but will now also include information about how previous budgets affected each issue, more complete information about the substance of the Governor's proposals how the proposals will affect Wisconsin's Women and Girls, and more interactive graphics. For a good example of what the new sections will look like, take a look at the updated BadgerCare section.
When the JFC makes changes to any of the Governor's budget proposals that we are covering on the website, we will provide updates both here on the budget blog and on the appropriate issue's page.
Finally, our website will undergo some formatting changes over the next couple of weeks, so please visit us again soon to check out all of the important budget news and our new look!
