Statement on the partisan passage of the Republican Transportation budget

Senator Erpenbach is a Democratic member of the Joint Committee on Finance, the state budget committee.

After a long summer wait for someone, anyone, in the Republican party to step up to help find a long term solution for our crippling transportation infrastructure system we have this budget. More borrowing. More delays. More roads that are dangerous. Governor Walker has failed in his promise to stop kicking the can down the road. Republicans have failed to stand up to Governor Walker’s stubborn rejection of any real solution for an infrastructure for our people and businesses. This is beyond disappointing for local governments, businesses and our people who rely on our infrastructure every day to work.”
