Watch For Deer – All Day!
As I drive around the 17th Senate District, it is clear that the
pre-rut has started. Please watch for deer crossing our roads at
unusual times of the day in ways that they don’t usually move
throughout the rest of the year!
The deer aren’t just grazing on the roadsides right now. They
are moving erratically, usually in pursuit of scent. They are
unpredictable and this is when we see an uptick in car-deer
incidents on Wisconsin’s roads.
Even though I have a cousin in the auto body repair business, I
don’t feel obligated to give him any more work! Stay alert and
drive carefully this fall.
State Aid to School Districts: Membership & Percent of
This week, the non-partisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau released
the 2014-15 estimated state support for school districts. State
support of each school district in Wisconsin is determined by a
formula which takes into account several factors such as
enrollment and property value. I have included data below that
reflects the enrollment and the percent of total state support
that each school district in the 17th Senate District received
for the 2014-15 school year.
For the full memo, please visit the
Legislative Fiscal Bureau website.
