Now that lawmakers have approved a state budget repair bill, the Governor is expected to use his veto pen to make changes. A raid on the State Transportation Fund is among the changes the Governor will likely make, and one state group says its a "bad move."
Craig Thompson of the Transportation Development Association says taking away state transportation dollars could result in a loss of jobs, by reducing the money available for new road projects in the state. Thompson says roads in the state are already falling apart, and raiding the fund will only make matters worse.
Doyle could use his veto pen to take money out of the fund, replacing it with state borrowing.
