Gov. Walker makes budget change to freeze tuition at UW System

Among the changes the governor wants is an enforced is a tuition freeze for students in the University of Wisconsin System. That part of the budget revision comes in reaction to reports the UW system has almost $650 million in reserves.

System President Kevin Reilly has requested a two percent tuition increase.

Walker says he doesn't want to reduce university funding, but he would like to see tuition frozen.
