The Power of the Line Item Veto

Check it out-- what the NBP looks like after Governor Walker exercises his line-item veto.

How bad is it? Here's the remaining role of the faculty: "The faculty, subject to the responsibilities and powers of the board and the chancellor, shall participate in academic and educational activities."


The students? "shall be participants in the university."

Is this the University of Wisconsin-Madison of YOUR dreams?

UPDATE: Apparently Chancellor Martin is "not worried the Governor will line item veto his own bill." Ok then, Scott Walker-- a man to be trusted. Hm....
