Lawmakers Send Money to UW

Wisconsin lawmakers are sending the University of Wisconsin the 32 million-dollars they once held-up over DEI.

The legislature’s Joint Finance Committee yesterday approved the money, which is now earmarked for workforce development programs. Republican lawmakers held the money, which the university wanted to spend on diversity, equity, and inclusion programs and administrators. Democrats yesterday accused Republicans of holding the money hostage. State Representative Mark Born said Republicans decided the money was being wasted, and ‘challenged’ the university to spend that money elsewhere.
