"....we've been getting input from small businesses, big businesses, homeowners, retirees, parents, a wide swath of people representing all sectors of life in Wisconsin to see what changes they would like to see. We've gotten a lot of good input...."
Chandler wouldn't say what the recommendations will be, but he thinks many will be included in the next proposed budget.
