MADISON, Wisconsin: Citizens interested in how their tax dollars might be spent can now see detailed agency proposals for Wisconsin's 2013-2015 biennial budget on the Department of Administration's website here. Gov. Scott Walker's administration posted the requests on September 18, the day after the submission deadline.[1]

In August, Walker instructed state agencies not to request overall spending increases as it would be another tight budget. According to the governor, the next budget will focus on “creating jobs, transforming education, developing our workforce, investing in infra-structure, and continuing to reform government.”[2]

Walker has until next February to review the proposals before sending his own proposal to the Legislature for their approval.[1]
