Senator Tiffany likes what budget does for northwoods

RHINELANDER, Wis. (WXPR) -- State Senator Tom Tiffany says the biennial budget that passed the legislature last week has some positives for northern Wisconsin. The Senate approved the Assembly-passed plan early Friday and sent it to Governor Walker.

Tiffany says the $68 billion dollar spending plan will help northern schools...especially those districts within the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest... hit with declining enrollments.

The budget moves money from towns and provides money to the school districts within the forest. “We were able to get some additional monies to those schools, and we added money for high cost transportation aid. and then of course there’s an extra 150 dollars per student that’s going to go for every student across the state of Wisconsin.”

Governor Walker is reviewing the budget and can veto various sections. When asked specifically about the funding for schools in the National Forest areas, Walker said last Friday in Tomahawk he won't have any decisions on vetoes until later this week.
