UW Regents Approve Budget
The UW Board of Regents decided Thursday to seek funding for 22 building and maintenance projects at campuses throughout the state. A $672 million dollar capital budget is being considered separately from the budget which runs the schools themselves. Some, according to UW-Regent, Brent Smith, will go towards Cowley Hall on the UW-La Crosse campus.
Other projects according to the La Crosse Attorney......a new Meat and Muscle biology lab, plus renovations for the Wisconsin Center for Dairy Research and Babcock Hall and a new chemistry and biology building at UW Stevens Point. The entire budget, approved by the regents, now goes to the Department of Administration.
