Reschovsky shares public finance expertise

Public finance expert Andrew Reschovsky discussed the state budget crisis with the steering committee of the Public Representation Organization of the Faculty Senate, a voluntary non-profit organization that advocates on behalf of University of Wisconsin–Madison faculty.
An analysis by La Follette School economist Andrew Reschovsky finds that although  the total amount of financial aid provided directly to Wisconsin school  districts from the federal stimulus bill for the next fiscal year (2010) is  greater than the reduction in state school aids in the proposed state budget, for  many individual districts the sum of state aid plus federal stimulus dollars will  be less in fiscal year 2010 compared to fiscal year 2009.
