WI Newspaper: It is Time to Consider Gas Tax, Tolls and Fees for Transportation

The Journal Times (Racine) editorial board contends it is time for Wisconsin lawmakers to break from Governor Scott Walker and raise taxes and fees for transportation. “No one likes to see his or her taxes go up. But most of us recognize that a municipality or state can reach a point where it becomes necessary to raise taxes or fees in order to continue providing an essential service.” The editors note, “In a break from Walker, Assembly Speaker Vos, R-Rochester, and other Assembly Republican leaders want to keep all options open — including raising the gas tax, increasing vehicle registration fees and instituting toll roads.”
