Hamilton Consulting's Political Tidbits - April 17th, 2015  

Just as the tulips outside the Capitol are about to come into full bloom, so has the state budget process. The Joint Finance Committee took its first executive action on the state budget this week and is taking votes on more budget items today. JFC voted on the state judiciary budget, the Public Service Commission (PSC) and in a number of other areas, all of which you can read about in our budget coverage below. Also this week, the Assembly took up a long list of bills, including legislation to address the regulation of ridesharing companies such as Uber or Lyft. Next week there will be a new senator voting on the floor, which you can read about in our coverage of the April 7 election.

There is more to find in this week's edition of Tidbits! Get an update on the prevailing wage bill, background on the Joint Finance Committee co-chairs' memo that removed non-fiscal budget items and details on the Wisconsin Association of Conventions and Visitors Bureaus' successful Tourism Day at the Capitol.
