TDA Statement on Governor’s Budget
MADISON – Last night, Governor Tony Evers unveiled a two-year budget plan that recognizes Wisconsin’s current transportation funding streams are insufficient to meet well-documented system needs. The governor understands that Wisconsin’s transportation network is interconnected and vital to the future success of Wisconsin’s economy, proposing key investments across the system. Transportation Development Association Executive Director Debby Jackson issued the following comment in response:
“We appreciate Governor Evers taking the next step to address challenges facing the state’s transportation system. We look forward to working with the administration and the legislature as the budget process continues. Transportation investment has been an area where bipartisan agreement led to significant progress in recent budgets, and we are optimistic that will be the case again this year.”
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.
