  • Summary
  • Wisconsin's transportation finance woes are long-standing. If past is prologue, the status quo—rising debt costs and project delays—will continue. However, the governor (R) and some legislative leaders (R) have also expressed interest in tapping income and sales taxes, the majority of which now goes to schools and Medicaid, to fund transportation. This could create a new set of larger problems.
