Republican lawmakers in Wisconsin are targeting the award-winning Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism. With little discussion and no public debate, a provision to evict the Center from its home at the University of Wisconsin School of Journalism was discreetly slipped into the state budget earlier this month. Dozens of journalism outlets from across the country are calling on Wisconsin lawmakers to take back this surprise eviction notice. The final budget could go to Governor Scott Walker’s desk by the end of the week. FSRN’s Dylan Brogan reports from Madison.
