Notes from JFC Hearing

By John Forester | April 19, 2017

Yesterday, the Joint Finance Committee held it’s fourth of six public hearings on the 2017-19 state budget bill in Spooner.  The SAA was well-represented with the following school superintendents providing testimony:  John Burnett (Spooner), David Bridenhagen (Shell Lake), Randy Drost (Rice Lake), Paul Uhren (Ladysmith), Kent Kindschy (Turtle Lake) and Kevin Shetler (Siren).  The following Minoqua-area superintendents also provided testimony in support of the Governor’s school funding provisions and requested state support for a pilot school largely designed to meet the needs of the area’s autistic students: Jim Ellis (Minoqua J1), Larry Ouimette (Lac du Flambeau), Jim Bouche (Lakeland UHS), Brent Jelinski (North Lakeland) and Jocelyn Smith (Arbor Vitae-Woodruff). Many thanks to these SAA members for their leadership.
