UW-Madison facing $58.9M cut in state aid - Nico Savidge, Wisconsin State Journal

The lawmakers restored at least in part two key operating flexibilities that were included in Walker's public authority model. UW-Madison will lose $58.9 million in state funding this academic year under the budget proposal now being considered by the state Legislature, according to figures released Monday by the University of Wisconsin System. The cut to the Madison campus was reduced slightly when lawmakers restored $50 million in state funding to the System as part of changes to Gov. Scott Walker’s executive budget. The budget now calls for cutting System funding by $250 million over two years.
