MADISON - A new analysis gives Wisconsin
schools a sense of how much money they will be losing under the
proposed state budget.
The Legislative Fiscal Bureau analysis
released Wednesday shows possible effects of a 3.1 percent cut in aid
next year. Actual aid calculations for next year, taking into account
property values and other data, have yet to be completed.
The report used this year's data to
give a general view of reductions schools should expect. The cuts are
part of the state budget scheduled to be debated on Thursday in the
Milwaukee schools would only be cut 2
percent, but Madison would be reduced 13 percent. Green Bay would lose
2.5 percent, Beloit 1 percent, Janesville 2 percent and Wausau 2.4
