Additional Response to State Budget Lapse

Opposition to the proposed additional $65.8 million cut to UW System continues to grow. Many chancellors spoke against the cut at an information hearing of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Forestry, and Higher Education on Tuesday, November 15, citing that UW System was unfairly targeted to absorb much of the cut. Here are links to the media reports and editorials throughout the state:
