Lawmakers open to ending University of Wisconsin tuition freeze as cut faces opposition - NICO SAVIDG, Journal-Times

The co-chairman of the Legislature’s powerful budget-writing committee says he is open to ending the freeze on University of Wisconsin System tuition in the next two years. “We can’t freeze tuition forever,” Rep. John Nygren, R-Marinette, told the Wisconsin State Journal, making him the second member of the Joint Finance Committee to indicate interest in allowing limited UW tuition increases. Nygren’s comments come as several key legislators, including leaders of both the Senate and Assembly, have been cool to Gov. Scott Walker’s proposed tuition cut for in-state undergraduates in the UW System. http://journaltimes.com/news/state-and-regional/lawmakers-open-to-ending-university-of-wisconsin-tuition-freeze-as/article_97652a3f-9010-5b09-bcfd-b238b922fe96.html
