Circus World Museum in Governor Walker's 2013-15 Executive Budget

Circus World well represented at state budget hearing. (Baraboo News-Republic, 4/10/2013)

"A power grab."  As described by Circus World Executive Director Steve Freese (and former Republican state legislator).    (Link to testimony.)

Excerpt:  Sauk County Board Vice Chairwoman Joan Fordham of Baraboo said Circus World could use money from the state, but the Wisconsin Historical Society should not take over the operations because the existing partnership with the Circus World Museum Foundation has resulted not only in successful fundraising, but also in a strong sense of community ownership.

Michael Youngman, member, Board of Directors of the Wisconsin Historical Society Foundation, supports the Governor's proposal.
