The governor's State of the State may be more notable for what wasn't mentioned last night.
UW-La Crosse political scientist Joe Heim says the governor stuck with a somewhat positive agenda that most lawmakers can embrace. Health and education.
But Heim didn't hear anything about transportation, prisons, shared revenue for municipalities, public school funding or QEO.
But the professor gives the governor good grades for looking forward. He says unlike his first term, the governor offered ideas that will pay off down the road rather than a quick, fix it now attitude.
As a UW professor, Heim especially likes the part of allocating 225-million dollars for the university. But the devil will be in the details of how the state can afford the governor's proposals.
