WHA Sponsors WisEye 2017 Coverage of JFC, State Budget

March 31, 2017

The Joint Finance Committee (JFC) is making news nearly every day with their deliberations on the state budget. This week, the JFC members debated the state’s self-insurance proposal, which was covered live on wiseye.org.

The state budget process and the Joint Finance Committee decisions are of critical importance to the citizens of Wisconsin and to the future of our state, according to WHA President/CEO Eric Borgerding. That is why for the second year, WHA is a major sponsor of WisconsinEye, a non-profit news network. WisEye provides Wisconsin residents with live, gavel-to-gavel coverage of the 2017-2019 state budget, which included the Governor’s budget address and, now, live coverage of the Joint Finance Committee hearings and legislative floor sessions.

Every minute of coverage is streamed live, whenever possible, on wiseye.org, televised on WisconsinEye’s cable networks and immediately catalogued and archived on the WisconsinEye website.

In addition to complete budget coverage, WisconsinEye programming also includes weekly recaps of legislative sessions and committee hearings on WisconsinEye’s flagship program "Rewind," featuring award-winning senior producer Steve Walters and guest host J.R. Ross from Wispolitics.com.

WHA is one of five sponsors underwriting the cost of the live and archived coverage that is being streamed through a digital video player. The other sponsors are Wisconsin Counties Association, League of Wisconsin Municipalities, AT&T and 5 Nines.

WisconsinEye programming can be watched from a desktop or mobile device on www.wiseye.org, or on cable Charter 995 or Time Warner 363.
