Rail Funding A Stimulus Priority, But Less So

Gov. Jim Doyle is pushing rail spending as part of Wisconsin's stimulus agenda, but Congressional committees are apparently looking to trim the transit portion of the stimulus.

The explanation: money to fund tax cuts had to come from somewhere, and you know it ain't the highway budgets.

Hat tip to one alert reader.

how can gov doyle think about a new rail system when 90% of wisconsin school district are in serious financial trouble. the education of our children should be of first priority to gov doyle. gov doyle, you are quite a disappointment.
