The State Senate today approved the 2019-21 budget bill on a 17-16 vote. The budget bill now heads to Governor Tony Evers desk.

University of Wisconsin System President Ray Cross issued this statement:

“The budget passed by the legislature makes a significant long-term investment in our campus infrastructure that will benefit students, our faculty, and the state for years to come.

“I thank Majority Leader Fitzgerald, Speaker Vos, and their respective caucuses for their leadership in moving these projects forward.

“I also thank Governor Evers for his steadfast commitment to the University of Wisconsin System during the budget process, and everyone who continues to advocate for a strong UW System budget.”
