We are opposed to increased spending on new highway miles in Wisconsin at a time when people are driving less and need more transportation options.
Stopping these expansions would free up over $1 billion that can be used to fix our crumbling local roads, provide quality transit service and create great biking and walking infrastructure.
We believe in Balanced Transportation
The current majority of our transportation spending is on roads. Healthy communities are built for people, not just cars.
Our vision is to increase transportation funding at the state level for transit, walking and biking infrastructure, while also maintaining our local road and highway network.
