AB132,1,3 1An Act to amend 36.27 (3n) (a) (intro.) and 38.24 (7) (a) (intro.); and to create
236.27 (3n) (a) 3. and 38.24 (7) (a) 3. of the statutes; relating to: eligibility for
3tuition fee remission for family members of certain veterans.
Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Under current law, a spouse, child, or unremarried surviving spouse of certain
veterans is eligible for a full remission of tuition at the University of Wisconsin
System and at technical colleges. For the spouse, unremarried surviving spouse, or
child to be eligible, the veteran must have entered service while a resident of this
state and either died while on duty or incurred a service-connected disability that
is rated as 30 percent or more.
This bill adds fee remission eligibility to the spouse or child of a veteran if the
veteran is a resident of this state and was a resident of this state for at least 15
continuous years before the student registers.
For further information see the state fiscal estimate, which will be printed as
an appendix to this bill.
