Republican budget leaders say the Wisconsin Senate and Assembly will not advance the part of Gov. Walker's budget that would give the UW System independence from state oversight.

Sen. Alberta Darling and Rep. John Nygren say they also want to restore some of the $300 million Walker would cut from the system's budget, depending on new state revenue projections. The tally on tax collections should be forthcoming soon.

Darling and Nygren head the Joint Committee on Finance, the Legislature's budget committee.
