Critical Hearing on Gov. Walker's Budget Repair Bill TOMORROW


AFP-Wisconsin Needs You!

Please join us in Madison for a public hearing on Tuesday, February 15th at 10:00 AM to support Governor Walker’s Budget Repair Bill.

Thousands of other government employees will be attending this hearing, rejecting Governor Walker's plan to have public employees pay their fair share of their health care and pensions to help balance the state budget - despite the fact that public employees earn an average compensation of $76,500 a year.

Gov. Walker's Budget Repair Bill takes important steps to reduce the size of government and balance the budget without raising taxes. It is imperative we attending this hearing and show our support for these reasonable and necessary steps that will help get Wisconsin's fiscal house back in order.

Moreover, as many as 8 Republicans Senators have not committed to the Governor’s plan. Your immediate action is needed for the Governor’s plan to pass the legislature this week. Click here to contact your legislator and tell them to support the Budget Repair Bill.

AFP is also proud to provide transportation for this critical hearing. Please see below for more details.
