Info on the WI state budget

UW-Madison library school student Kim Pittman and Beth Harper, Government Documents Reference Librarian @ Memorial Library, created a research guide to the “Wisconsin State Budget.

This guide includes information about the state budget process as well the the 2011-13 biennial budget and the 2011 budget repair bill.

There also are relevant materials in Andersen Library’s collection. For example, a search of the HALCAT library catalog would find titles such as Wisconsin’s State budget outlook: The worst is yet to come (2nd-floor WI Documents, Z/LC HM 261/23/1 or online) from the Wisconsin Policy Research Institute and Enacting the state budget bill (2nd-floor WI Documents, Z/LC HM 261/23/1 or online) from the Wisconsin Legislative Reference Bureau. And you can read the state newspapers, including the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, The Capital Times (Madison), and The Janesville Gazette, in the America’s Newspapers database.

    I’d like to add that current action can be tracked at the Budget Blog (, e.g., link to Dane County Circuit Judge Sumi’s decision granting a temporary restraining order preventing the Secretary of State from publishing 2011 Wisconsin Act 10 and setting a hearing date for March 29th. A blog entry from Monday, March 21 links to the Department of Justice motion to appeal that order filed with the 4th District Court of Appeals. It seeks to stay and appeal the temporary restraining order.
