UPDATE: Bill would require regents come from around state
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The Wisconsin state Assembly has passed a bill designed to ensure members of the University of Wisconsin Board of Regents come from across the state.
The measure passed Tuesday on a voice vote would require that at least one member of the board come from each of the state’s eight congressional districts. There are 14 members on the board.
The measure now heads to Gov. Scott Walker for his consideration.
