Doyle says federal aid needed to avoid tech college and UW cuts

Wisconsin's Governor, Jim Doyle, told the House Appropriations Committee yesterday that unless they pass a stimulus package that includes support for state and local governments he will be forced to cut technical college and state university funding:

"...state budgets ...allow kids to get a good education, and a chance at a good university or technical college education that their families can afford..." Doyle said." So that's what is threatened: our schools, our universities, our technical colleges...These are the areas that determine our budgets...And these cuts could undermine years of careful progress."

Doyle's entire testimony is linked.
