2011-2013 budget impact on counties

How will the Governor’s proposed 2011-2013 budget impact your community?

Below is a list of impact fact sheets for all Wisconsin counties. As new information becomes available, IWF will continue to update these sheets. Budget amendments that were approved during the last week of legislative action are not yet included and won’t be until the veto process is complete and the Legislative Fiscal Bureau analyzes the final document. It appears likely, however, that as a result of those amendments, the cuts to local governments will be approximately 30% less than previously anticipated. Check the date in the footer to see if you have the most recent data (latest updates are in June 2011). If you are looking for facts about your community and the date is prior to June, please email with your request and we will update the information for you.

The immense amounts of data collected by local, state and federal government agencies can be an incredibly valuable trove for enterprising journalists. It can also be a pointless slog.
