More Budget Blues

Senator Kathleen Vinehout released a memo on April 1 outlining a number of largely unnoticed and under-reported changes to Wisconsin's governance, among them

  • removing state funds to pay for the reciprocity agreement between Wisconsin and Minnesota that allows students from across state lines to attend public universities at in-state tuition costs;
  • abolishing the Educational Approval Board that sets standards for and examines details of curriculum and facilities of the for-profit colleges operating in Wisconsin;
  • moving the information technology functions of the non-partisan Government Accountability Board to the Department of Administration (that is overseen by the governor's political appointee), risking the integrity of the state's voter file as well as the reporting system for disclosing campaign donations, lobbying activity and the financial relationships of elected or appointed officials.
