Wisconsin Senate Leader Pushes Short-Term Borrowing and Long-Term Tolling

Associated Press reports that Wisconsin Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald “says he doesn’t think Assembly Republicans’ plan to fund road-building has any momentum. Fitzgerald told reporters during a question-and-answer session [on May 10] that he believes the best short-term solution is borrowing backed by the state’s general fund and the state should consider toll roads as a long-term way to fund roads. He says toll roads could generate billions of dollars.”
