Joint Finance Committee and Assembly Proposed Budget Cuts

The Wisconsin Assembly has completed action on rewriting the Governor's budget adjustment bill (Special Session 2002 AB 1). The bill was passed by the Assembly on a vote of 51-48.

The Assembly version of the budget adjustment bill increases budget cuts to the UW System. The following is a summary of the budget adjustment bill as it now stands. The Wisconsin Senate will pass its own version of the budget adjustment bill and then the two houses will likely convene a conference committee to resolve the differences.
