No Money For Transit Or Potholes - - Billions For More New Highways

Bus ridership in Milwaukee County, falling.

Pothole expenses, rising.

Rail transit, non-existent.

Common complaint - - not enough money.

But the state is forging ahead with its $1.9 billion rebuilding and expansion of I-94 between Milwaukee and Illinois, all to squeeze a few minutes off that 38-mile commute.

Wisconsin's transportation problem is not a money shortage.

It's an idea shortage.
