Marlin Schneider is Back

Marlin Schneider is making news again with his bill trying to micromanage book choices and advising at Wisconsin Colleges.

If you remember, he proposed the same thing last year. Dean Zimmerman invited him to campus to discuss the issue. Schneider promised to come several times and then backed out at the last minute.

I doubt there is much to worry about, but here is the story from the Lacrosse paper.

Lawmaker calls for UW ‘student bill of rights'

Thanks to Brian Bain for posting this to the university discussion list.

Given the current climate in this legislature, and the fact Schneider now has Kreibich on his side, this has potential to at least move through the committee and to the floor for a vote. It will cast even more negative attention on and breed more ill-feelings for the UW System! Those with the agenda (some say vendetta) against the system will seize this as yet another opportunity to badger us. Now is not the time to be complacent!
