Transportation funding has become one of the key debating points in the two-year state budget making its way through the Legislature. Gov. Tony Evers proposed an 8-cent-a gallon increase in the gas tax plus while getting rid of the minimum markup on gasoline — something the administration said would more than wipe out the increase. Republicans have removed the minimum markup provision and left in the gas tax increase for now. Where will the debate lead and will it result in a long-term solution?
Hear details from some of the key players in the debate at a WisPolitics.com issues luncheon set for Thursday, June 13 at UW-Milwaukee’s Waukesha campus just off I-94.
