Statement from Rep. Barca on Gov. Walker’s Transportation “Plan”

Madison – Below is a statement from Democratic Minority Leader Peter Barca (D – Kenosha) on Gov. Walker’s flawed transportation proposal: “This so-called plan by Gov. Walker is all smoke and mirrors. If I take money from my left pocket and put it in my right pocket, I still have the same amount of money. That’s what Walker is calling a ‘new deal.’ We need a better deal for Wisconsin that includes prioritizing investments in our roads and schools ahead of special interests giveaways. Republicans have spent the last six years more focused on giving money hand-over-fist to their friends instead of taking care of the priorities of taxpayers.”
