In the last state budget, Governor Walker proposed to ​Privatize ​the Family Care Program in Wisconsin,​ which would have impacted 55,000 senior citizens and people with disabilities. 

The LPS was one of many organizations working to prevent this move.  The LPS focused all efforts on helping State Senator Alberta Darling (co-chair of Joint Finance) to understand the consequences of this plan. 

Ultimately, a vote was never held in Joint Finance and the effort died....for now.
