Photo gallery Legislators tour School of Veterinary Medicine

March 13, 2019

Members of the legislative Joint Finance Committee, a bipartisan panel of lawmakers who deliberate on state budget matters, got a tour of the UW–Madison School of Veterinary Medicine on March 13 from Chancellor Rebecca Blank and Dean Mark Markel. Gov. Tony Evers has recommended $90 million of state-supported bonding to fund an expansion of the school, the state’s only veterinary program, in his 2019-21 capital budget. The facility, built in 1983, currently serves three times the number of clients that it was designed to accommodate.
