The Governor's raid on the state transportation fund is under attack.
To help plug the state budget hole, Governor Doyle wants to take nearly $300 million from the state DOT fund. The money would be replaced with new bonding.
Craig Thompson of the Transportation Development Association is critical of the move, saying it's "exceedingly unfortunate." He says attempts to do the same thing in previous budgets have proven the method does not work.
Thompson says money in the transportation fund comes from gas taxes and registration fees. He says it needs to be used to fix roads, not used to fix a budget problem.
