Gov. Walker signs bill to diversify UW leadership

WAUSAU (WAOW) -- Gov. Scott Walker made a stop in Wausau late Tuesday afternoon.

He joined leaders at UW Marathon County to sign a bill impacting the UW system. It requires members of the UW Board of Regents to come from each congressional district in the state. Previously, there was no geographical requirement for appointments.

Walker says this change will give a voice to each district and each UW campus in the state.
