Three Good Things in the Wisconsin Budget

number3bnwNone of these is directly about education.

  1. Closing the Las Vegas Loophole.(technically this was done outside of the budget process).
  2. Enabling the creation of  Regional Transit Authorities.  The final version is far from perfect, but in general a good thing.
  3. Increasing the tax by 1% on those earning over $300,000.

What did I miss?  Are there any other positive steps (not just “could have been worse” things)?
