Wisconsin state government got some good fiscal news when the nonpartisan legislative fiscal Bureau reported on August 31st that tax revenues were still relatively high this year, despite the COVID-19 pandemic. That makes it less likely that the legislature will have to enact a budget repair bill for the current year. While the 2020 budget is looking bearable, all bets are off for 2021. A new report from the Wisconsin Policy Forum warns that the state’s public school system is already falling behind, and new budget cuts could make things worse.
