Bill Text: MKE Streetcar Operating Cost Protections Act The purpose of this bill is to protect state taxpayers and our state transportation fund from any operational costs of a Milwaukee streetcar system. If this issue is not addressed, the potential exists that some of the operational costs would be funded by state tax dollars. This would have a detrimental effect on all statewide mass transit systems, especially for taxpayers who do not reside in Milwaukee.

Bill Text: Roundabout Accountability Act This bill simply allows local municipalities to have a say in the process before being forced to have a roundabout placed in their community. To ensure this, the legislation would require an affirmative vote of the majority of a city council, town or village board in order for a roundabout to be constructed in their municipality.
