University of Wisconsin System President Tommy Thompson says Republican legislative leaders have told him – if he asks for a tuition increase the budget he submits won’t be approved. Thompson spoke earlier this week at a Wisconsin Policy Forum discussion on lagging state support for the system. Thompson is seeking a 100-million-dollar increase in state funding for the next two-year budget, but he hasn’t asked for a tuition increase. It has been frozen for the last eight years.
