Assembly Higher Education Committee Considers WiscNet Legislation

On Thursday, February 16, the Assembly Colleges and Universities Committee held a public hearing on AB 473.  This legislation would delay by one year the prohibition of UW System from being a member of WiscNet.  UW Colleges & Extension Chancellor Ray Cross testified in support of the bill on behalf of the UW System.

The Committee is scheduled to vote on the legislation at its next meeting on Thursday, March 1.  See Committee notice here.
