MADISON – Assembly Democratic Leader Peter Barca (D-Kenosha) released the following statement today reacting to Governor Walker‘s plan to slash an additional $300 million in state funding from the University of Wisconsin System:

“Budgets are about priorities and once again dramatically slashing higher education in the 21st Century global economy will drastically take Wisconsin in the wrong direction. Under Governor Walker’s proposal, Wisconsin’s world-class higher education system will feel the immense pain of Republicans’ fiscal mismanagement. There is no doubt that the UW System’s ability to offer high-quality, affordable education will suffer.”
