MADISON - Gov. Scott Walker wants to cap the University of Wisconsin System's ability to raise tuition if they decouple from state oversight.
Walker's budget calls for cutting $300 million from the system and extending a freeze on resident undergraduate tuition to July 1, 2017. In exchange the system would be free of state oversight starting in July 2016.
The plan has left students and legislators worried that the Board of Regents could dramatically increase tuition when the freeze ends.
