Argh… more money stolen from our kids being spent with virtually no effort at controlling spending. The road builders have politicians from both parties by the short hairs.
All four Democrats on the Legislature’s budget committee joined six Assembly Republicans on Wednesday to approve borrowing $350 million for big-ticket road projects — including the Verona Road/Beltline Highway project and widening Interstate 39/90.
Six Senate Republicans voted against the plan.
At the same time, Democrats slammed Gov. Scott Walker and the Republican majority for not developing a long-term plan sooner to pay for major road projects, including raising the state’s gas tax.
