The FY 2019 State Operating Budget

The FY 2019 operating budget released by Governor Walker in December 2017 included funding for early childhood in the Department of Education & Early Development. This includes $320,000 for Best Beginnings, the same as last year.

The Legislature is crafting its version of the FY 2019 operating budget now. The House Finance Committee is working on recommendations now. You can see who is on the committee and how to contact them by clicking HERE.

This is a good time to email or call members and let them know you support funding for early childhood.

We will provide more information here as the Legislative session gets underway. Follow us on Facebook to stay informed.
