MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Gov. Scott Walker is indicating he may increase funding for the University of Wisconsin System and technical colleges, possibly tied to performance measures.

Walker and the state Legislature previously tied a larger portion of technical college funding to performance in multiple areas, including placing students in jobs related to their fields and degrees awarded in high-demand fields.

Walker told reporters after a luncheon Thursday that he’s interested in looking at similar performance-driven components for the UW System going forward. He said it wouldn’t be exactly the same as for technical colleges but didn’t provide details.

Walker’s comments come a year after Republican lawmakers cut the UW System by $250 million in the 2015-2017 budget.
