Walker Proposes $200 Million WisDOT/Special Interest Shrine

Yes, a Governor and an entire administration allegedly dedicated to fiscal conservatism can jump the shark:

Scott Walker proposes new $200 million DOT building in Madison 

No funding for transit. Pennies for potholes. But billions for new Interstates and roads and, if Walker's edifice complex goes uncontested, a palace for contractors and bureaucrats to commune.

You might hear that planning began under former Gov. Jim Doyle.

OK: if Walker just follows the Jim Doyle lead on transportation-related matters, when does the first Milwaukee Amtrak train roll into the Madison station?
