Wisconsin Lawmakers Are Still Considering Tolling

Janesville Gazette reports, “Some drivers will go out of their way to avoid toll roads, but Wisconsin lawmakers are steering toward tolling as an option to fix the Badger State’s road funding problem.” According to the article, Assembly Republicans are proposing that the state seek federal authorization for interstate tolling and “apply for enrollment in two federal pilot programs to study the costs and benefits of tolling.” If the proposals are approved, the report adds, “it could take four to six years of state studies and federal vetting before any toll roads could be activated. . . .”
