Walker Talks Budget Again
(AP) Republican Gov. Scott Walker says his executive budget will include billions of dollars for transportation infrastructure. The governor's office issued a press release Friday pledging the budget will invest $6.4 billion in transportation, including $824 in new money.
The statement offered no details on how Walker would come up with the money. His spokeswoman said only that he would not raise gas taxes or vehicle registration fees.
A bipartisan task force recommended last month the state should raise gas taxes and impose a new mileage-based registration fees, but Republican leaders rejected both ideas.
