Capitol Chaos: MTEA President Calls Budget 'Devastating'
MILWAUKEE - Reaction has come on Governor Scott Walker's 2011-13 budget plan from the Milwaukee teachers union.
MTEA President Mike Langyel is using what seems to be a popular buzz word.
"Devastating attack," Langyel told Newsradio 620 WTMJ's Jon Byman.
Langyel doesn't like much about the bill, but especially the Governor's repeal of income caps on the School Choice program.
Milwaukee's teachers are under contract for another two years. That could be a problem as the district tries to shoulder cuts.
When asked if they would reopen the contract and take more cuts, Langyel says he thinks they've already taken enough.
"We have pay freezes, significant (concessions) in health care, etc."
