Transportation Development Association Executive Director Debby Jackson released the following statement on Governor Evers’ budget plan:
“TDA applauds the Governor for proposing the enumeration of the critical I-94 East-West Corridor project and the establishment of a multimodal local transportation grant program. Both items help communities and the state improve vital economic connections.
“Transportation is crucial to support Wisconsin industries and businesses with their recoveries and get Wisconsinites back to work. Transportation investment moves everything.
“After decades of disinvestment, the 2019-21 state budget slowed the decline of system conditions. Wisconsin needs to maintain the progress made in the current budget and build on it. TDA members look forward to working with the Governor and Legislature on the bipartisan goal of growing and strengthening the Wisconsin economy.”
From the buses in Racine to the Port of Green Bay to the rail lines in Superior to the Waukesha County Airport to the roads we use every day, Wisconsin’s transportation network is the key to connecting goods to market and people to jobs.
Founded in 1971, the Transportation Development Association of Wisconsin promotes the vitality and safety of the state’s transportation system, including public transit systems, public-use airports, railroads, commercial ports, and roads. TDA’s members comprise business, labor, units of government, regional planning organizations, as well as individuals.
