Story By Associated Press

MADISON - The Wisconsin Legislature's budget committee continues its road show next week.

There will be two opportunities for the public to speak out about Governor Scott Walker's budget proposal.

The first hearing by the Joint Finance Committee is Monday at Lambeau Field in Green Bay. The second one is Wednesday at the Kalahari resort in Wisconsin Dells. A final hearing is set for April 18 in Baldwin.

Once the hearings are over, the Republican-controlled committee will vote on changes to Walker's plan. Then the full Legislature will take it up in late June.
