MIlWAUKEE, WI (WTAQ) - Legislation being fast-tracked at the Capitol would let Milwaukee County voters decide next April whether they want to cut county supervisors’ pay from $50,000 a year to $15,000.

It would also strip about five million dollars from the county budget, severely impacting the boards ability to function as the county’s legislative branch of government.

Opponents of the measure say it would hurt diversity on the board, leave low-income neighborhoods unrepresented and shift the governing power to County Executive Chris Abele.
