Higher WI Gas Taxes, New/Increased Fees Pushed, But...

As I've predicted on this blog, a state task force is recommending higher gas taxes, increased vehicle license and registration fees and a new per-mile-driven annually-collected personal tax - - all to subsidize a new binge of road-building.

These are ideas will go nowhere because the GOP will balk.

Or collectively be required to turn in their "No New Tax Club" badges issued by a Grover Norquist.

And that per-mile-driven tax is DOA because it requires reporting to The Guvmint the very kind of personal, financial and behavioral information that will lead to car confiscation.
