Government and Political Roundup: Bipartisan agreement for tuition freeze
The call for a tuition freeze for students in the University of Wisconsin System is bipartisan. Democrats have joined Republicans in demanding the freeze. This comes in response to a memo released last week by the Legislative Fiscal Bureau. It showed the system finished the last fiscal year with almost 650 million dollars in reserves. Republicans immediately asked how the Board of Regents could justify raising tuition for the last six years with that much money in reserves.
