MADISON, WI (WSAU) Wisconsin state agencies have been ordered to make 123 million dollars in spending reductions without layoffs, if at all possible. Taking another direct hit is the University of Wisconsin System, which has been told to trim another 46 million dollars over six months. That’s on top of a previously announced quarter-billion dollar reduction over the two-year budget cycle.

Governor Scott Walker’s Department of Administration released specifics of the plan yesterday. The Legislature budget committee is expected to hold a hearing next month to make sure core state services are not affected. Assembly Minority Leader Peter Barca says the cuts disproportionately target higher education.
