Today’s WSJ has a spread on the damage Wisconsin’s state funding formula is having on public education, including bulleted message points. These are great talking points for letters to the editor, and even more importantly, letters to members of Joint Finance Committee.
The Wisconsin Joint Committee on Finance is currently taking testimony statewide from residents on the proposed Governor’s budget and has vast power in changing the budget before the Legislature votes on it. Senators Mark Miller and Mark Pocan of Madison are currently on Joint Finance, but it would be powerful to submit your letters to all 16 members.
