MADISON — The Legislature's budget-writing Joint Finance Committee has announced that one of four public hearings on the proposed 2019-21 state budget will be in River Falls.

That hearing is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, April 15, in the Riverview Ballroom of University Center at UW-River Falls, 500 Wild Rose Ave.

The other public hearings are planned April 5 in Janesville, April 10 in Oak Creek and April 24 in Green Bay.

"We highly encourage the public to attend these public hearings. Hearing comments, concerns, and opinions from Wisconsin citizens is key for us to craft the best possible budget for our state," JFC co-chairs Sen. Alberta Darling, R-River Hills, Rep. John Nygren, R-Marinette, said in a joint statement.
