Reilly's editorial against more budget cuts

The system chancellor published an editorial in the Capital Times, hoping to stop the slashing at the Capital.

The downward spiral - of slipping further and further behind other states, such as Illinois and Minnesota, in average annual income - has already begun and is accelerating every day. But this can be reversed. As the Joint Committee on Finance prepares to vote on the UW System's budget, I am asking them to look past the fray and see the UW System for what it really is - the best insurance that our kids and grandkids will be able to live and work in a Wisconsin with an expanding 21st century economy that will employ their talent, skills and ingenuity to the fullest.
