Madison – State Senator Chris Kapenga (R-Delafield) released the following statement after the Joint Legislative Audit Committee heard testimony regarding the audit of the State Highway Program within the Wisconsin Department of Transportation.
“Today’s hearing revealed that we haven’t even begun to scratch the surface of the problems at the DOT. We must further investigate practices at DOT ranging from how they select projects for construction to ensuring they have a competitive bidding process. We should not begin discussing revenue increases until the DOT can prove it can be more transparent and accountable to the taxpayers of Wisconsin.”
