I am extremely concerned about Governor Walkers proposal to eliminate the science bureau of the WI DNR. How can the DNR effectively safe guard the environment without research and monitoring of our lakes, rivers, ground water and wildlife populations. This is an extreme measure that is an assault on Wisconsin’s environmental legacy. You, as a scientist, must not let this happen.
I had the pleasure of touring our great state’s capitol this past weekend. It definitely is a reminder of the wonderful history we share as Wisconsinites. Quick aside I found your seat in the general assembly and sat down, what a pleasure that must be.
I am contacting you today to let you know of the disapproval I have towards our Governor’s proposed budget cut to the UW System. I am in favor for sensible cuts and holding bureaucracy in check. But I am not in favor for destabilizing the UW System with a $300 million cut. Over half of Wisconsin graduates that were born in Wisconsin stay and work here in Wisconsin. I am currently an engineering student at UW Madison(so I may be biased), but I wouldn’t want to start a tech company in a state that doesn’t value higher education. This state’s rich history has always been intertwined with our globally renowned University System. Please encourage Governor Walker and your fellow assembly men to balance the budget with less extreme measures that don’t endanger Wisconsin’s future competitiveness.
