A larger than normal increase in what University of Wisconsin Athletics will pay for salaries and benefits drove the department to ask for an 8 percent increase in spending authority next year. UW Athletics will seek approval from the Athletic Board on Friday of a 2018-19 fiscal year budget that has $143.5 million in expenses. The details were unveiled Wednesday in a meeting of the board’s Finance, Facilities and Operations Committee.
