President Cross statement on 2017-19 Capital Budget

“I would like to thank Senator Darling and Representative Nygren for their support of the UW System. They made a commitment to work with us throughout the budget process, and we greatly appreciate this investment in our institutions. I also want to especially thank Representative Born and his staff for their leadership in the capital budget. They made investing in our infrastructure a priority and we appreciate their work.

“With the funding approved today, our campuses will be able to conduct maintenance, repair, and renovation projects, as well as provide important instructional space for our faculty and students.”
