Just Fix It Wisconsin

WPR’s State Capitol Report: Transportation audit, legislative maps, Lincoln Hills and more 1/30/2017

1/30/2017, WPR (audio) – According to our guest, even if the state Department of Transportation fully realized the potential savings laid out in a recent audit, it wouldn’t come close to solving Wisconsin’s billion dollar funding shortfall.  In the State Capitol Report, we discuss why he says it’s up to Governor Scott Walker and state lawmakers to keep Wisconsin’s “crumbling” roadways from going from bad to worse.  Then, Assembly Minority Leader Peter Barca explains why he says Republican failures on transportation put us in a “crisis state.”  He also weighs in on other issues, including a court order for new Assembly maps to be drawn this year, fresh allegations of abuse at the Lincoln Hills youth prison and more.
