Budget decisions made by lawmakers have an enormous potential to help or harm the well-being of Wisconsin families and communities.

But we know that following the budget process can be time-consuming and a lot to take in. That’s why we’ve prepared summaries that explain in plain language what the governor’s proposed budget would mean for schoolchildrentaxpayersparents of young childrenimmigrant familiescollege students, and anyone who wants to make sure that Wisconsin residents stay healthy.

To help advocates like you track the potential effect of the budget, we’ve put together a quick guide on how Wisconsin gets and spends its public resources. We’ve also laid out a plan for using the budget to make investments that will bring broadly-shared prosperity to Wisconsin. Our analysis also takes into account where proposals will help to advance racial equity.

We’ll be updating the resources on our budget page as the process moves forward, so check back frequently. You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter (@wibudgetproject) to keep to date with budget decisions that affect Wisconsin’s schools, families, and communities.
