A state lawmaker is attacking a five and a half percent tuition hike expected to be approved by University Wisconsin Board of Regents this week. Whitewater Republican Steve Nass is a member of the Assembly Committee on Colleges and Universities.

The tuition increase "ignores the plight that the middle class families are going through right now," says Nass, who accuses the Regents of "arrogance," for allowing the increase to go forward. Regents are expected to okay the increase Thursday.
