Potential Consequences

  • State library system for sharing of resources could be dismantled. Eliminates a requirement that library funding levels be maintained at the average level of the prior three years, at a minimum. The requirement has been in place since the library system was established in 1972 to ensure municipalities can't slash services and book budgets while taking advantage of the resources at neighboring libraries, according to the Department of Public Instruction (DPI). (WSJ 3/3/11)  


  • Creates an uncertain impact on interscholastic athletics in the state. As districts brace for deep cuts to academic programs, extracurricular activities, including interscholastic athletics, will be placed at risk of severe cuts. According to Michael Thompson, the assistant superintendent for the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction and its liaison to the WIAA Board of Control, ‚ÄúSome of these issues about ... whether you keep athletics or not, some (districts) don't even know if they will have a choice." WIAA executive director Dave Anderson has suggested the possibility of a reduction in games and travel restrictions to assist districts in cutting their sports budgets, but has also acknowledged that the budget could force the WIAA to review its transfer rules if some districts cut sports while others do not.



  • Freeze on municipal tax levies would prevent cities from repairing sewer systems damaged by flooding. Repairs of sanitary and storm sewer systems damaged by flooding, and improvements to avoid future flood damage would be unlikely, putting many cities at risk in the event of flooding.
