Tolling Still Considered a Possible Solution to Wisconsin’s Transportation Funding Crisis

The Capital Times (Madison) reports that State Representative John Nygren (R-Marinette), co-chair of the Joint Finance Committee, says tolling continues to “emerge” as a solution to the state’s transportation funding crisis. “We don’t have a lot of polling done on transportation funding, but the only one that we do see that gets over 50 percent approval is tolling,” according to Nygren. “It would take a longer time to implement tolling because it would take congressional approval to be able to do that. So that’s not an immediate fix.”
