Rep. Craig Circulates Legislation Giving Local Governments Final Say in Roundabouts
 
Madison, Wis. – Today, Representative David Craig (R-Town of Vernon) circulated for co-sponsorship legislation that would require a proposed roundabout to be approved by the governing body of the municipality in which it would be located. Rep. Craig explained: 
 
Requiring the governing body of the municipality in question to approve the construction of a proposed roundabout is a commonsense measure because it is these local units of government that truly know their areas best. They know local traffic flows, the concerns of the people, business needs, and the types of traffic far better than Department of Transportation (DOT) bureaucrats in Madison. If a roundabout is truly in the best interest of an area, the DOT should make that case to the local governing body and let them make the final decision. This is simple legislation that I know many people across our state will support because they want and deserve a voice in how their roads are constructed."
 
Rep. Craig represents the 83rd Assembly District which is comprised of portions of Waukesha, Walworth, Racine and Milwaukee Counties.
