WI legislators, on educ. today, could show Foxconn effect

[Update - - Also on the cusp of being Foxconned: local taxpayers. Details, here.]

Wisconsin's GOP legislators, both in thrall to the Foxconn siren song and Scott Walker's re-election, are to take up in committee today state education funding as they work their way to crafting a two-year state budget now about two months late.

Keep an eye on how much if any new financing they say they will send to the states schools, how much less that sum is to be if money is predicted towards the multi-year Foxconn diversion, and how much of these potential reductions are shoved into the out years to get the subject off voters' minds as the 2018 election rolls around.
