BadgerCare Petition

Three area county executives are working to convince Governor Walker not to remove thousands of people from BadgerCare.
APPLETON, Wis. (WFRV) - Three area county executives are working to convince Governor Walker not to remove thousands of people from BadgerCare.

Outagamie, Winnebago, and Fond du Lac county executives met in Appleton today to petition the governor to postpone his proposal.

Around 77,000 residents statewide would be affected if it goes through.

These area leaders say if recipients need healthcare and can't afford insurance, then their community will have to foot the bill.

Local 5 has reached out to the governor's office for reaction to this petition, but has heard no response.
