Bill would give veterans priority for UW classes

MADISON (WSAU-Wheeler News)   The Wisconsin Senate is scheduled to vote today on a bill giving veterans priority over other students when they sign up for U-W and technical college classes. Supporters say it would improve veterans' chances of graduating before their federal G-I benefits expire -- thus saving the state money.

State benefits kick in after federal benefits expire, and U-W officials say the federal benefits often run out for one-or-two semesters before veterans graduate.

U-W Oshkosh already includes veterans in its early registration program.
