While Doctor Day 2021 has shifted to a virtual format, the May 5th event promises to offer equally important hot topics and content.
This year’s policy and politics panel will include members of the powerful budget-writing Joint Committee on Finance. Committee co-chairs Representative Mark Born (R-Beaver Dam) and Senator Howard Marklein (R-Spring Green) will be joined by their Democrat colleagues Representative Evan Goyke (D-Milwaukee) and Senator Jon Erpenbach (D-West Point).
You will hear a first-hand account of important budget topics, and during the middle of budget negotiations. This includes policy related to the Department of Health Services and funding for the Medicaid Program. This is a great opportunity to hear differing views on policy and spending priorities for the 2021-23 Biennial Budget and current legislative session.
Other components of the day will again include policy breakouts, priority issue briefings, a keynote presentation and of course, legislative visits.
