09/25/2019- One local State Representative is part of a group of lawmakers seeking to make higher education in Wisconsin more affordable to American Indians. Representative Jeff Mursau of Crivitz, along with Representative Nick Milroy and Senator Jeff Smith are the chief sponsors of a new bill to allow American Indians from anywhere in the US to pay in-state tuition rates at University of Wisconsin System schools. The hope is that the bill, if passed, would encourage more American Indians to attend Wisconsin schools, thereby increasing diversity and working toward reconciliation between these tribes and the state.
