The colleges' panel voted 8-4 for a bill that makes the Board of Regents have at least one member from each of seven geographic areas in the state.

Rep. Jeff Smith, D-Eau Claire, wrote the bill.

He said his area has not had a regent for over 30 years, except for student members.

University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire student Aaron Wingad is on the panel. There's a similar bill in the Senate, and it was recently endorsed by its higher education committee.
