Hoslet: State budget is UW–Madison’s legislative priority

In an interview with the Capital Times, Charles Hoslet, UW–Madison’s associate vice chancellor of government and corporate affairs, says the state budget is the main legislative priority for the university.

“Ninety percent of what we’re interested in happens in the state budget,” Hoslet said.

UW–Madison is advocating for UW System President Ray Cross’ budget proposal, which includes a request for $95.2 million in new state funding for the “Talent Development Initiative.”

“Nobody has suggested that we’re asking for things that are not worthy of investment,” Hoslet said. “It’s a question of, where does it fall in terms of the priorities of the state budget overall?”
