Public hearing Saturday in Rhinelander

Rhinelander (WAOW)- More than 150 people packed the LRC Theater in Rhinelander to discuss the state's budget.

State Senators Jim Holperin and Bob Jauch invited the community to a public hearing Saturday at Nicolet College.

The public hearing is one in a series of similar sessions being scheduled by Democrats statewide.

Attendees praised the Senators for taking the time to listen to their opinions. Curt Powell attended the hearing. He says, "I think that this entire process of listening to the public is so important and I thank the senators for doing this. Senator Holperin has been great, as far as we are concerned, and I really appreciate him doing that."

State Democrats held the meetings because they felt the State's four official public hearings were not enough.
