Cross wants laws changed so UW can borrow money through a line of credit and possibly start classes earlier than Sept. 1. He is also asking for a reduction in reporting requirements to free up resources.

Cross made the request for a special session in a letter sent to Evers, Assembly Speaker Robin Vos and Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald.
