WI Assembly Speaker Takes an Ambulance Ride to Drive Attention to Transportation Funding Needs

The Journal Times reports, “Assembly Speaker Robin Vos filmed an ambulance ride [link added] around Racine County to show the need for road repairs, as the debate over roads funding begins in earnest. Vos, R-Rochester, released the video [yesterday, December 5], a day before the state Assembly was scheduled to hold a hearing on the Department of Transportation’s budget request. Vos has pushed for what he describes as an ‘all-of-the-above’ approach to paying for roads, including raising new revenue [via highway tolls, among other methods]. But others in his party, most notably Gov. Scott Walker, have resisted raising taxes or fees.”
