The University of Wisconsin System will be given more autonomy, while having its state funding slashed by 13 percent over the next two years, under the budget Gov. Scott Walker will submit to the Legislature next week.
Walker released details of his budget plan as it affects the UW System to The Associated Press on Monday ahead of a public announcement on Tuesday.
“It will make the University of Wisconsin more efficient, more effective and ultimately more accountable,” Walker said.
The State Journal first reported this month that Walker was considering giving the System more autonomy, possibly accompanied by budget cuts. Walker and System president Ray Cross confirmed the discussions last week.
The state is facing a $2 billion budget shortfall for the two-year budget that begins July 1.
WELL WHOSE FUCKING FAULT IS THAT? He created a crisis and is using that crisis to justify the cuts.
They no longer want to drown government in the bathtub. Now they want to draw and quarter it and spread its entrails to the four corners of the earth while its parents watch.
