Walker proposed removing the Wisconsin Idea from UW's mission statement, then backtracked and said Thursday that it was a simple mistake that's being blown out of proportion. Walker also said he was unaware of the proposed change until the day after the budget came out.

Democratic state Rep. Chris Taylor, of Madison, says Walker needs to take responsibility for the error and "own it."
