State scales back capital spending for next biennium
Gov. Scott Walker recommended approval of about $300 million in building projects for the University of Wisconsin System, but did not include a highly sought-after School of Nursing building for UW-Madison. He recommended that project, valued at $52.2 million ($34.8 in general fund supported borrowing and $17.4 million in gifts and grants) be deferred to the next biennium. But overall, the recommendations are “favorable” to UW System, said capital planning and budget vice president David Miller.
