GOP leader doesn't think lawmakers will vote for $181M for UW system

MILWAUKEE, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald says he doesn’t think lawmakers are going to approve a proposed $181 million funding increase for the University of Wisconsin System now.

Fitzgerald made the prediction on a conservative radio talk show in Milwaukee Wednesday, pointing to the controversy over what he called the system’s “slush fund,” $650 million in reserves revealed by the Legislative Fiscal Bureau.

Governor Scott Walker originally proposed the $181 million dollar bump in his state budget.

Walker now wants the Board of Regents to freeze tuition for the next two years.
