The debate over the 2011-13 state budget has begun at the committee level, and will continue over the next few months eventually in the state Assembly and Senate. As part of that debate, lobbyists will be working to influence lawmakers on budget issues on behalf of various groups.

The Wisconsin Association of School Boards (WASB) represents the interests of school districts across the state, but a group comprised of school districts in Oneida and Vilas counties, including the School District of Rhinelander, is also considering hiring a lobbyist to represent it during the next few months as the state budget is discussed and approved. The budget is set to take effect July 1 if both the Assembly and Senate approve it by then."
