Walker Budget: Wisconsin Students Could Nix Paying for Liberal Programs

Walker Budget: Wisconsin Students Could Nix Paying for Liberal Programs

Conservative college students at the University of Wisconsin could opt out of paying for liberal campus programs under Gov. Scott Walker's proposed state budget.

The budget proposes making "allocable segregated fees" used for some school activities optional for students, The College Fix reports.

Some students have launched a protest of the possibility, which is being touted as a freedom of choice.

"This is the best example of big government overreach, trying to take control of our allocable fees," Colin Barushok, chair of the student government committee in charge of allocating the fees at UW-Madison, told The Daily Cardinal.

"They don't have any business telling students they can opt-out of these fees, especially considering these fees are allocated by elected student officials."
