Grothman Supports Gas Tax Increase; WisDOT Says It Doesn't Need The Money

Two nuggets about the state's wacky transportation spending, and the legislators who are always willing to hand more of your money to the road-builders, are found in this intriguing Daily Reporter story:

1. State Sen. Glenn Grothman (R-West Bend), prefers a tax tax increase over tolling for Wisconsin highway projects - - though tolling is a dead issue in Wisconsin for all practical purposes.

Oh, there's no stopping those tax-and-spent, Big Guvmint Republicans.

2. But maybe we don't need either tolls or a higher gas tax, as WisDOT says its budgets are just fine until 2015 - - so let's get that billion dollars or so off the Obama stimulus list for I-94 north/south, OK?
