EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- This fall, voters in Eau Claire County will weigh in on referendums on the minimum wage and federal funding for health care.

The board approved putting the questions on the November ballot Tuesday night. One will ask if lawmakers should raise the minimum wage to $10.10 per hour. The other asks if the governor should accept federal funds to expand Medicare and Badgercare in Wisconsin.

Both are advisory referendums, meaning the results are recommendations.
