Yes, but look at it on the bright side:

The money the UW has to come up with, will probably be used to enrich a private service provider who has favored Governor Walker with generous campaign contributions.

Wiscnet does provide better service at a lower cost, and institutions are not forced to use it.

The article leaves a lot of details unmentioned - for instance, any details about the text of the law itself, a link to the law, the number/name of the bill... I don't support the Republicans on this one at this point.
