Panel mulls future of University of Wisconsin-Extension - Lyn Jerde, Portage Daily News

Extension is facing a permanent cut of $6.3 million in the state’s budget — part of a $250 million cut in expenditures for the UW System, of which Extension is one component. Patti Herman, UW-Extension Columbia County family living educator, said she senses, from the Juneau meeting, that Extension officials are sticking with plans to keep an Extension presence in all 72 Wisconsin counties, but to organize all but the state’s most populous counties into multi-county administrative regions. The proposal to group Sauk, Columbia, Dodge and Fond du Lac counties into one region seems unlikely to change, Herman said.
