You better hope these kids aren't voting in Wisconsin anymore:
Under the proposed changes in the budget bill, reciprocal tuition would remain in place, but Wisconsin students studying in Minnesota would face tuition increases because they would be required to begin paying Minnesota in-state tuition, which is higher.
The Legislative Fiscal Bureau reported the proposed elimination of these subsidies, which are paid out by the state to cover Wisconsin residents' higher costs of education in Minnesota, would save taxpayers an estimated $12 million annually.
Granted, the gap between tuition in Wisconsin and Minnesota will likely get smaller, considering that the UW System is being subject to huge budget cuts, while the University of Minnesota appears to be maintaining its funding. Hence, tuition will be increasing at a faster rate in Wisconsin than in Minnesota in the next two years.
