12,000 Pages of Support for U. of Wisconsin

March 27, 2015

Thousands of University of Wisconsin System advocates put together 12,000 pages of petition signatures and public comments that were submitted to a legislative finance committee considering massive cuts to the system, a group of system supporters said Thursday. The outpouring is just the latest sign of opposition to cuts proposed by Governor Scott Walker, a Republican with presidential ambitions. Walker proposed cutting the system's budget by $300 million over the next two years. The head of the university system, Ray Cross, has said he would resign if he cannot do something to reduce the size of the cuts.
