Recommended Reading and a WiscNet Update

More specifically, pages 29-30, the federal broadband grant and WiscNet compromise language.

From a reliable source.    Looks like the UW grant can proceed and WiscNet has until July 1, 2013, to operate under the UW umbrella and UW can remain a WiscNet member to that same date. Legislative Audit Bureau will do a financial and performance evaluation by Jan 1, 2013. Need to see the exact language but this is much better than what we were hearing this afternoon. I’m waiting for the UW to issue some official statement, which may not come until morning.

As of 10:04 p.m., the Wispolitics Budget Blog notes that "the big Republican amendment has been moved to the bottom of the calendar".  Note the use of the singular, meaning they'll be just one vote.


Are you ready for the Senate?
