CINC letter to Gov. Walker: How budget cuts hurt the Chippewa Valley
As you may know, the Chippewa Valley is one of five Wisconsin demonstration communities sharing in two Building Community Capacity through Broadband (BCCB) grants totaling $32.3 million to improve high-capacity Internet access and use (announced on August 18, 2010). On behalf of the 18 members of the Chippewa Valley Inter-Networking Consortium, I am writing because on June 4, 2011, the Joint Finance Committee added provisions 23 thru 26 to Gov. Scott Walker’s UW System Budget Bill to terminate Wisconsin’s BCCB.
