Study: Wisconsin Should Find New Ways to Fund Long-Term Care

Two conservative-leaning groups plan to outline for Wisconsin – how it could adjust its retirement programs for public workers and its long-term care program for residents. The groups two are the MacIver Institute for Public Policy and the National Center for Policy Analysis. They will lay-out their ideas in Milwaukee, Thursday morning. Pam Villarreal is a senior fellow with the center. She spoke with WUWM’s about the long-term care item. According to Villarreal, Wisconsin like many other states must find ways to care for its aging population.
