Vital UW Capital Project Funding Signed Into Law

MADISON – Senator Robert Cowles (R-Green Bay) released the following statement after the Governor signed Senate Bill 895 into law as 2023 Wisconsin Act 102, directing funding to a series of capital projects at University of Wisconsin-System campuses, across the state:

“Our University of Wisconsin campuses are educational powerhouses, and investing in system-wide construction and renovation projects to support their mission should give every Wisconsinite more pride in our institutions,” Senator Cowles stated. “From the new Engineering Building at UW-Madison to additional development work at UW-Green Bay, each of these projects will help to train generations of talented students, preparing them to become the leaders of tomorrow. Now that this funding has been secured thanks to Act 102, the work can begin on making physical investments into the growth of Wisconsin’s university students.”
