UW System could have an easier time putting up buildings

MADISON (WKOW) - The UW System could have an easier time of putting up buildings in the future.

A group called the Wisconsin Higher Education Business Roundtable passed a resolution allowing the system to not need approval from lawmakers if it builds something for less than $2.5 million.

The board is made up of business leaders.

It wants lawmakers to change the way projects are budgeted to encourage savings.

Earlier this year, a system report said current building rules are outdated, cause delays and drive up costs.
