Kolste will help review Technical College funding

The way technical colleges are funded could be changing, and 44th Assembly District Representative Deb Kolste of Janesville could be helping make the decisions.  Kolste will be part of a legislative committee considering removing technical colleges from property taxes in favor of a broader state tax source.  The Democrat notes transferring governance to the state technical school system board would remove local control over Blackhawk Technical College curriculum and administration.  Kolste says she's glad the issues of governance and funding will be debated and analyzed in the open by a bipartisan panel.
