Scott Walker wants to freeze tuition at UW system schools for the next two years.&nbsp; The change is part of an amended budget request the Walker administration has submitted to the Joint Finance Committee.&nbsp;&nbsp; The Governor also wants to cut an increase in UW system funding from $181 million to about $87 million. The changes come after news surfaced that the UW system had a $650 million surplus. Changes in the new budget proposal would lower the UW system reserve fund by $136 million.</p> Thu, 16 May 2013 12:57:28 +0000 Bob Bach 3358 at http://wuwm.com Walker Seeks Tuition Freeze Wisconsin Not Alone in Spotting Perceived "Surplus" in University System http://wuwm.com/post/wisconsin-not-alone-spotting-perceived-surplus-university-system <p>Wisconsin is not the first state to question its universities’ books according to Kevin Kiley, a reporter with the online publication <a href="http://www.insidehighered.com/news/2013/04/26/wisconsin-systems-budget-reserves-become-target-lawmakers" target="_blank">Inside Higher Education</a>.
