In New Glarus we have been striving for excellence and have received many awards and recognitions to show that we are making great strides toward that goal. If you agree that maintaining our public schools is important, please become educated on what is in the current budget bill and how it will affect our school system. There is not much time to affect change, but if you have reason to oppose any items in the Omnibus Education Bill please be sure to register your thoughts, concerns and opposition.
To begin, it is always good to let your elected representatives hear from you. The following links identify legislative districts and legislators.
It is also important to reach out to Assembly and Senate leadership who will be controlling the agenda, issues and debate at the caucus level, which is likely to begin sometime the week of June 8. Representatives Voss and Murtha (Rep.Murtha@legis.wisconsin.gov Rep.Vos@legis.wisconsin.gov) will be leading the Assembly discussions while Senators Fitzgerald and Harsdorf (Sen.Fitzgerald@legis.wisconsin.gov Sen.Harsdorf@legis.wisconsin.gov) will be doing the same in the Senate. Reaching out directly to the Governor is also appropriate since he can line-item veto if these measures pass through the caucus process (http://www.walker.wisconsin.gov/contact-us).
