PROFS Budget Forum Tomorrow

Reminder! PROFS will host a public forum to discuss the 2013-15 state budget at noon tomorrow, Tuesday, March 12 in the Wisconsin Idea Room in the Education Building. The forum is free and open to the public. There will be ample time for questions from the audience.

The forum features three experts on the state budget process — La Follette School of Public Affairs professor Andrew Reschovsky, Vice Chancellor for Finance and Administration Darrell Bazzell, and City of Madison Finance Director and former State Budget Director David Schmiedicke.

Possible topics of discussion include block grant funding for UW System, the possibility of a pay plan, performance-based funding, and tax policy and how it may affect other budget items.
