WI Governor Nixes Tolling as a 2017 Funding Option

Wisconsin State Journal publishes a year-end interview in which Governor Scott Walker says he will not include tolling in next year’s transportation budget proposal. However, Walker “didn’t close the door on that option for future budgets if Congress acts to allow tolls in the state. He said borrowing for roads will not exceed the $500 million included in the Transportation Department’s budget request. He has previously said he doesn’t support increasing the gas tax and other fees to pay for roads.” (Bake sales? Magazine subscription drives?)
