Jonathan Peacock, research director for the Wisconsin Council on Children and Families, tells us about the hidden wonders of Governor Walker’s proposed budget.

Peacock talks about Workfare for Food Stamps, funding for schools, the elimination of the Buy Local program and much more.

Standing and Peacock also talk about some of the stranger budget elements, specifically one that has a lot of folks, including Standing and Peacock, scratching their heads: The part of the budget that changes a law that has existed since the 1800’s that now repeals protecting Wisconsin land from being owned by large foreign corporations.
