Gov. Evers Releases Statement Regarding Board of Regents Vote

MADISON  Gov. Tony Evers released the following statement regarding the vote by the University of Wisconsin (UW) System Board of Regents today.


“It’s clear the regents are deeply divided over this proposal, have immense concerns about this process and the difficult position they were put in, and are all committed to their charge—doing what’s best for our past, present, and future students, faculty, and staff, and the institutions that have defined our state for generations.


“I believe that’s what they did today in voting their values, and I understand and support their decision and vote.


“I look forward to this discussion continuing in the weeks and months ahead. I urge legislative Republicans to remain in those conversations so we can work together and find common ground to do what’s best for the UW System, including investing in the UW-Madison engineering building.


“In the meantime, I again urge legislative Republicans to release the already-approved UW System employee raises and investments included in the biennial budget that are well overdue.”
