LFB Letter to Mayor Barrett

As promised, here's the letter sent from Legislative Fiscal Bureau Director Robert Lang to Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett on January 23, 2006 regarding the school voucher program in Milwaukee.

The letter lays out responses to three questions posed to the LFB by Mayor Barrett. The first two questions deal with the fiscal effects of eliminating the voucher program in Milwaukee while the third question considers how much Milwaukee taxpayers pay for an MPS student in comparison to a voucher student. The responses to these questions form the basis of Barrett's proposal to alter the funding of the voucher program.

You can read more about Barrett's proposal here and here.
