An update on budget discussions from Chancellor Blank

Chancellor Rebecca Blank responds in her blog to media reports about budget discussions and the UW System.

“UW System President Ray Cross is in charge of negotiating the items relating to the System that will be in the Governor’s budget,” Blank writes. “I have not been directly involved but I and others at UW-Madison have been in communication with System officials about what impact various budget scenarios might have on the campus. At this point no decisions have been made and it would not be useful to speculate on what might or might not be included in the Governor’s budget, which will be released on Feb 3.”
