MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - No major actions are on the agenda for a meeting Thursday of the UW Board of Regents.

But the panel will discuss some important items. They include governor’s funding proposal – plus an update on the UW’s faulty payroll and benefit computer system, which caused employees to get over $30 million more in benefits and tax payments than to what they were entitled.

The Regents will also chew over Governor Scott Walker’s plan to give the university an additional $181 million in new state money over the next two years, after several years of reduced state funding.

The budget package includes $90 million to help keep the UW affordable for students, plus an extra $40 million for construction projects that were previously approved.
