A Crowbar: A Tool We Don't Need for WiscNet

A crowbar, a tool of destruction.

A crowbar, a tool offered as a way to dismantle WiscNet, the very successful collaborative network that has fostered cooperation among higher education, K-12 schools, and libraries over the past 16 years.

A crowbar, a tool that threatens to cause damages running into the thousands of dollars to every state campus, public school, and public library -- if we can manage the cuts to the UW system, state aids to K-12 education, state shared aids to municipalities and counties, and the elimination of maintenance of effort as a requirement for public library system membership.

Why are we being penalized for saving the taxpayers of Wisconsin money?

A crowbar?  No thanks.  As far as WiscNet is concerned, we already have the tools we need.

Please contact your legislator immediately and request that they remove sections 23-26 of the UW System budget bill.  Please do so with courtesy and respect.  Otherwise, your contact will be counterproductive.
