Shilling To Sit On Tech College Committee
Several high-ranking Republicans have already indicated their intent to strip
local Technical College District Boards of their control and shift oversight to a central state bureaucracy. Senator Jennifer Shilling has been appointed to a tech college committee and will have better oversight on these proposed changes.
Legislation introduced last session by Joint Finance Committee chairman Representative John Nygren would have eliminated local control of the Technical College System and increased Wisconsin’s sales tax by one percent or about $945 million per year.
