Just Fix It Wisconsin
Don’t blame Ripp for unfunded roads — Craig Thompson 8/31/2016
8/31/2016, Wisconsin State Journal – In the Aug. 25 letter to the editor “Ripp hasn’t fought for road solution” the writer suggests Rep. Keith Ripp, R-Lodi, hasn’t been a leader on transportation. While I sympathize with the reader’s frustration, directing that frustration at Rep. Ripp is unfair.
As an advocate for sound transportation investment, I have witnessed Rep. Ripp’s actions and he has been a consistent proponent of solving our transportation funding quandary. He was a co-sponsor of legislation that gave voters the chance to amend the state constitution prohibiting lawmakers from using transportation user fees for other purposes.
