The Honorable, The Senate:
According to Wisconsin School Law 121.87 in accordance with 13.172, the Board is required by law to submit the enclosed reports. School Law 121.87 states "...annually by May 1 the board of school directors of the school district operating under ch. 119 shall submit a report to the legislature under s. 13.172(2) that specifies the number, percentage, race, sex, grade and attendance area of pupils transferred outside their attendance area without written consent under s.121.85(6)(am)."
S301 Enclosed you will find a report that meets the requirements stated above. The total number of intra-district students bused under the Chapter 220 designation for the school year 2010-2011 equals 15,167. Of that number 662 either did not return a consent form or checked box indicating no consent. Students who have moved during the school year and not longer require parental consent were subtracted from the non-returned figure. The district did meet the requirement of nine-five percent (95%) parents providing consent.

The Honorable, The Senate:
As required by s. 13.94(1)(em), Wis. Stats., we have completed our annual financial audit and biennial program evaluation of the Wisconsin Lottery, which is administered by the Department of Revenue (DOR). We have issued an unqualified opinion on the Wisconsin Lottery's fiscal year (FY) 2009-10 and FY 2008-09 financial statements.
Sales of instant game and lotto tickets decreased 5.5 percent over the past five years, from $509.1 million in FY 2005-06 to $480.9 million in FY 2009-10. However, largely because of the introduction of a new multi-state lotto game, total sales increased 1.6 percent in FY 2009-10. From FY 2005-06 through FY 2009-10, gaming-related proceeds funded $699.3 million in property tax relief.
