UW-Madison to stay in system, budget panel says - JSOnline
The Journal Sentinel did not really give Rep Pat Strachota the kind of credit she deserves for her role in working out this legislation, but the Capital Times did.
"This plan is a great start at giving all of the campuses in the UW System the flexibilities they need and have been asking for," said Rep. Pat Strachota, R-West Bend. "It is the product of a lot of thoughtful discussion and compromise and sets the stage to continue the dialogue on allowing further flexibilities in the future."
Strachota and Sen. Sheila Harsdorf, R-River Falls, are the members of the Joint Finance Committee tasked with taking the lead on higher education issues.
Tip o the hat!
