RTA Mess In Wisconsin Gets Murkier

The legislature didn't do the greatest job of policy-making when it set up the first Regional Transit Authorities, but with differing taxation and geographic boundaries.

Now we see that the authority approved for Dane County is facing another challenge: some want the money raised for transit eligible also to be spent on roads.

Other than governments are short of funding for every purpose, what's the reason to take money finally dedicated to transit and allocate to road purposes?

Commenters: enlighten me.
