Economist Reschovsky to receive national honor

Economist Andrew Reschovsky will be honored in November with the 2011 Steve Gold Award, which recognizes a person who has made a significant contribution to public financial management in the field of intergovernmental relations and state and local finance.
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.
