Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

MADISON, WI — A Wisconsin lawmaker plans to introduce a bill that would dedicate the state’s lottery windfall money to local road improvement projects.

State Senator Tim Carpenter (D-Milwaukee) said the Wisconsin man claiming the $768.4 million Powerball prize Tuesday means the state collects $36.5 million in income taxes.

Carpenter said using this money for local road improvements would be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

“It’s one of the top issues I hear from constituents the most the shabby condition of many of our local roads,” Carpenter said.

Carpenter says the bill will be ready to introduce soon.
