Democrats have complained that the Republican-controlled Joint Finance Committee did not schedule enough hearings on the budget around the state.

That's why they've decided to host their own hearings in smaller communities like La Crosse.

There will be a hearing Monday night in La Crosse co-hosted by area Democratic lawmakers including State Representative Jill Billings, Steve Doyle, and state Senator Jennifer Shilling.

The hearing will be from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m. at the Hogan Administrative Center Gym located at 807 East Avenue South.

The public is encouraged to attend.
