Senator Janis Ringhand statement on developing a comprehensive transportation plan

“The I-90/39 expansion is a critical component of Rock County’s economic comeback. We need a comprehensive plan to fund our transportation program.

Governor Walker has been too busy travelling around the country to develop a comprehensive transportation plan.

It is easier to use a credit card than take the time to develop a comprehensive plan.

I am willing to sit down with the Governor and transportation stakeholders to make sure that we have a plan to fund our scheduled road projects.

It is time for Governor Walker to come home and take the lead on making sure Wisconsin’s transportation commitments are fully funded.”
