Governor’s budget, including UWL science building, is stalled again by Building Commission
For the third time, the Wisconsin Building Commission has put a large construction project at UW-La Crosse on hold with a 4-4 tie vote.
The second half of the Prairie Springs science center is part of the governor’s $2 billion capital budget, which has been halted by Republican members of the commission all three times since Tony Evers became governor.
“And it’s disappointing, but not surprising.”
“Every year that we have to keep reinvesting in that building is a strain on the campus,” she says. “Every year we put off building Prairie Springs Phase Two, it becomes more expensive, a lot more expensive.” The first Prairie Springs building opened in 2018.
