Bipartisan calls for UW System to freeze tuition

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - 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 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. A total of $414 million was in tuition reserves.

Democrats are normally among the strong supporters of the system, but they sent a letter to system President Kevin Reilly calling for the tuition to be frozen for the next two years.
