Governor Walker’s Call to Cut UW System Tuition

Senator Steve Nass (R-Whitewater), Vice-Chairman of the Senate Universities and Technical Colleges Committee, issued the following statement on Governor Scott Walker’s call to cut UW System tuition during the 2017-2019 biennium.  This replaces the current tuition freeze that has already saved the average student nearly $6,300:

“Governor Scott Walker is leading by example in cutting UW System tuition to benefit the middle class families of Wisconsin. Where the UW System has failed families in controlling costs, the Governor and legislative Republicans have already delivered a historic tuition freeze and now we are going to cut tuition. ”
