Barrett: I Won't Raid DOT Fund
One group in the state has started a drive for a constitutional amendment to require that transportation funding only get used to fund the state's transportation system. Constitutional amendment or no constitutional amendment, Wisconsin democrat candidate for governor Tom Barrett pledges not to raid money from the state's transportation fund for other uses. It would be a break from the traditions of the current democratic governor. In the recent past, Governor Doyle has taken hundreds of millions from the fund to help pay for schools.
