Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is poised to renew efforts to eliminate oversight of for-profit colleges in the state, according to a report in the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

According to the newspaper, the budget that the Republic governor introduced last week calls for eliminating the Educational Approval Board by January 2018.

"The governor proposed getting rid of the board in his 2013-15 executive budget as well, arguing then that doing away with it would lift unnecessary financial and regulatory burdens on for-profit schools," the newspaper said. "Opponents countered that the board plays a key role in overseeing the schools and the Legislature's finance committee ultimately nixed the idea as it revised Walker's budget."
