The state spends billions of dollars on road construction, and the gas tax is not drawing in as much revenue as cars become more efficient.
WISN 12 News caught up with one lawmaker who believes the toll road solution is gaining support.
“Long term, we have to look at toll roads. I look at the notion of using tolling but maybe bring down that high auto registration fee somewhat as a tradeoff,” Democratic state Rep. Peter Barca said.
Here’s a novel idea….instead of lawmakers from both parties raiding our state’s transportation fund to pay for other things, how about they actually let transportation money be spent on transportation projects.
What’s more, I’d love to see the state spend more money on local transportation infrastructure projects, rather than spending more money expanding freeways that don’t necessarily need to be expanded.
