Charge Per Mile Weighed By Transportation Commission
Wisconsin's gas tax provides money for the state's transportation projects. But in an ever decreasing amount. Craig Thompson, with the Transportation Development Association of Wisconsin, is on a special state commission tasked with finding new funding solutions for roads as the gas tax shrinks in relation to project costs. Among the options considered by the commission: A per-mile charge for drivers
Not a fee likely in the near future for the state, says Thompson. He anticipates an increase in the gas tax, or a bump in car registration fees to help fund roads and other transportation projects.
