At long last, the Legislature's Joint Finance committee is going to decide how to pay for roads and plug a $1 billion hole in the state's transportation budget. The panel is scheduled to meet today to vote on transportation, one of the few remaining items left to tackle, after a long delay in debate over the biennial spending plan. Typically, lawmakers approve the budget before the end of June.
WUWM's Marti Mikkelson spoke with Wispolitics Editor JR Ross, about the road the state budget has traveled. Also on the committee's agenda, whether the state should spend $3 billion to lure Taiwanese electronics giant Foxconn to southeastern Wisconsin.
