Welcome to the second edition of Chart Smart! Today, we've got a look at the University of Wisconsin System in preparation for tomorrow's votes in the Joint Finance Committee.

These charts examine state support to the System, followed by the overall UW System budget, including federal dollars and gifts. Since the Governor's proposed tuition freeze and tuition cut are on the docket for Tuesday, we also take a look at in-state and out-of-state tuition across public Big Ten schools. A history of program revenues offers a peek into the UW slush fund debate, sure to come up this week. Finally, we compare salaries for the average household in Wisconsin with employees of the UW System.
