WI Budget Battle Back and Forth

WI Budget Battle Back and Forth

There is some disagreement about federal money at the Wisconsin Capitol.

Democratic lawmakers say by not spending enough in state dollars on schools, Wisconsin is jeopardizing one-and-a-half-billion-dollars in federal money. The Republicans who write the state budget aren’t so sure. They think the 500-million they’ve proposed for schools over the next two years is enough to guarantee the federal match. The sticking point is that 350-million of that 500-million isn’t going to be spent until next year.
