Provision Seeks to Impede New Stillwater Bridge

The wording and placement of the Stillwater Bridge provision in the budget bill is highly suspect. It appears that special interests have found someone to do their bidding in Madison. This amendment would simply remove options for our two states as they face the challenge of building a new Stillwater Bridge.

Ongoing delays, fueled by lawsuits filed by the Sierra Club, are costing taxpayers literally hundreds of millions of dollars. It's time to stop putting up roadblocks.

It is ridiculous to suggest taxpayers are served by limiting options for construction. It is clear that some Madison lawmakers do not fully understand how imperative a new bridge is for western Wisconsin.
