An Unintended Consequence of Section 25 of UW System Omnibus Motion?

The legislation prevents UW from accepting any broadband grants, being a member of WiscNet and Internet2, or allowing any DoIT support of WiscNet operations (despite the fact that WiscNet pays for all these services). The net effect of this legislation would be absolutely devastating to us, costing us millions of dollars and threatening the ability of our researchers to obtain grants or to even do their work.
