MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Governor Scott Walker's administration has a new budget director.
Michael Heifetz is starting his new post Monday. He replaces Brian Hayes, who left last month to become the administrator for the state Hearings and Appeals' division.
Heifetz returns to state government after serving the past 11 years as a vice president of governmental affairs for Madison's Dean Clinic and SSM Health Care of Wisconsin.
Before that, he spent a decade as a policy adviser and analyst for the Assembly and the state budget office.
