Governor, Legislature disagree on transportation funding

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

WISCONSIN — There’s more budget controversy in Wisconsin. Democratic Governor Tony Evers is signaling he doesn’t support Republican plans to raise car registration fees.

Evers’ budget called for an additional $624 million in transportation funding. It was covered in part by raising the gas tax by 8 cents per gallon.

The Republican-controlled Joint Finance Committee scrapped Evers’ plan earlier this month and replaced it with their own. They want to raise title fees by $95 and car registration fees by $10.
