UW Board of Regents approves request of $95M budget increase

OSHKOSH, WI (WTAQ) - The UW Board of Regents Thursday agreed to ask Governor Scott Walker to allocate $95 million additional dollars for the university in next year's state budget.

During a meeting in Oshkosh, the Regents voted unanimously to seek the extra funding -- even though the Republican Walker warned state agencies not to expect more money next year.

UW System President Ray Cross said the extra funds are needed for a new job creation initiative, boosting graduation rates, and offsetting effects of a tuition freeze in the last state budget -- plus another freeze Walker said he would seek next year if he's re-elected.
