The #BadgerBounceback Live Sessions series provides an opportunity for Wisconsinites to discuss and provide feedback on Gov. Evers' Badger Bounceback agenda with the goal of working together to help pass a bold, bipartisan budget that will help our state bounce back from COVID-19 and better than we were before this pandemic hit. Topics covered in these sessions include pressing issues facing Wisconsin families, including affordable healthcare, bolstering our state's economy, improving education for all Wisconsin students, and more. Wisconsinites can also share their questions about the Governor's budget on social media by posting using the "#BadgerBounceback" hashtag.

“Our Badger Bounceback agenda is all about making sure our state can bounce back from COVID-19 and better than we were before this pandemic hit," said Gov. Evers. “But as I said during my budget message, and as has been the case since before I took office, I'm not going to make decisions about you, without you. These Badger Bounceback Live Sessions are key opportunities to listen and learn from the people of our state in hopes that we can pass a bold, bipartisan budget that will address the urgent challenges facing our state so we can bounce back from this crisis." 

The Badger Bounceback Live Session schedule is available below, and Wisconsinites interested in participating can RSVP via the links provided. Badger Bounceback Live Sessions will also be streamed on the governor's YouTube page for those interested in viewing. Members of the press are invited to attend and will receive RSVP information in advance of each respective listening session.​
