What's the Treasurer's role in the budget?
The State Treasurer develops the budget for their office every two years along with other constitutional offices and state agencies. The Governor receives those requests, introduces a budget proposal that includes the Treasurer's budget, the Legislature approves the spending allocations, and the Treasurer works to provide transparency and accountability in the way they spend that money.
Wisconsinites voted overwhelming to ensure that they would continue to have that critical fiscal watchdog, and now it's time to provide the resources necessary so this office can continue to meet your expectations and serve our state. As the State Treasurer's budget is being considered, you can make your voice heard to ensure this office has the resources it needs.
