Gov. Scott Walker has indicated he won’t support increasing Wisconsin’s vehicle registration fee, even though the Legislature’s top Republicans say they’re open to it.
Walker's proposed transportation budget borrows $1.3 billion to pay for roads, a move that's been roundly panned by lawmakers from both parties. That list includes Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Vos and Republican Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald, who both said this week they'd consider raising the vehicle registration fee. Vos said it could be used to reduce borrowing.
