In Case You Missed It:
Wisconsin Democracy Campaign came up with the worst 100 things that have happened in Wisconsin under Scott Walker:
1. Public School Funding – 2011 Act 32 – Cuts state funding for public schools by the largest amount in state history -- $830 million over two years – and creates a school voucher program for Racine. Increases state spending on voucher schools to about $300 million from 2011-13.2. Tech College Funding – 2011 Act 32 – Cuts state funding for technical colleges by the largest amount in state history – $72 million over two years.
As we know, there is always more:
The non partisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau released a memo stating that the WISGOP have passed 128 provisions that are either unfunded mandates or directly take away local control.
Included on the list are revenue limit restrictions passed during the 2011-12 legislative session, a measure that prohibits local governments from enforcing a residency requirement for its public employees in 2013-14, and in 2015-16, easing restrictions on development on buildings or homes in a shoreland setback area and requiring all high school seniors to pass a civics test to graduate.
