REPORT: As Local Roads Crumble, State Transportation ‘No Longer an Option’

WISCONSIN — A non-partisan tax research organization has investigated the state of Wisconsin’s transportation funding, and the results are getting pretty dire. Two new reports from the Wisconsin Taxpayers Alliance (WISTAX) point to several issues that have been largely overlooked. WISTAX has found that state funding has been shifted away from the state’s transportation fund, giving rise to high borrowing. WISTAX has pointed out that state transportation debt costs are at a rate three times of the federal government, and that is “no longer an option.” As a result, cities towns and villages are seeing their roads crumble as they delay projects on account of dwindling funding from the state.
