Evers' Pick to Lead State DOT says More Road Revenue is Needed


(Wisconsin Radio Network)

Governor Tony Evers’ pick to head the state Department of Transportation, Craig Thompson, laid out his vision for members of the state Senate's transportation committee Wednesday. “I would view how well we’re doing at the department, really not by what initiatives we can talk about or different programs and policies, but by whether people notice that the conditions are improving. That their transportation system is getting better, and that metrics back up that we are improving that situation,” Thompson said. Thompson, whose appointment must be approved by the full Senate, says another 360 to 400 million dollars is needed every two years, just to maintain current conditions and adds that more revenue will need to be found. Governor Evers is expected to act on recommendations put forward by a task force he's appointed which includes Thompson.
