Associated Press reports, “The Republican leader of the Wisconsin state Senate says he is open to toll roads. Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald [link added] said Tuesday [January 3] at a news conference that adding toll roads in Wisconsin is ‘not going away’ as part of the discussion about how to raise money to pay for roads. The state faces a nearly $1 billion transportation budget shortfall. Fitzgerald says tolling is ‘not something you want to take off the table.’”
