Governor Evers’ handpicked advisors support his tax increase agenda

Madison, WI – Senator Duey Stroebel (R-Cedarburg) released the following statement following the second and final meeting of Governor Evers’ Transportation Task Force

Unfortunately, it’s not a surprise to learn that Governor Evers’ handpicked Transportation Task Force has decided to increase the gas tax by 17%. Governor Evers and Secretary Thompson have been focused on raising taxes since the beginning rather than considering any measures to control cost. The fact the task force is making this recommendation after meeting twice in less than a week is a clear indicator that the task force only existed as a diversion for Governor Evers from his unpopular tax increase policy.
