WI Governor Walker Stands Firm on No-Tax Pledge for Road Improvements

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel gets Governor Scott Walker’s reaction to the WisDOT report citing the need for Wisconsin to raise its transportation infrastructure investment, possibly by collecting tolls on interstate highways. According to the newspaper, “Walker spokesman Tom Evenson said the tolling report would help guide officials as they consider their options. He downplayed the long-term findings of the report on the condition of the state’s road fund and said it did not change Walker’s position on the issue. ‘The governor will not go back on his promise to voters to not increase taxes without a commensurate reduction in taxes elsewhere,’ Evenson said in a statement.”
