MADISON, Wis. (AP) - It would cost more to register a vehicle, get a driver's license and buy gas in Wisconsin under a series of recommendations unanimously approved by a group studying ways to shore up transportation funding in the state.
The recommendations would generate about $479 million a year over the next 10 years were released Wednesday by the Transportation Finance and Policy Commission.
Many of the group's ideas have already been rejected by Gov. Scott Walker.
The commission says the impact on the average driver would be $120 a year.
Walker has said improving the state's infrastructure is one of his priorities, but he is opposed to raising the gas tax. He will outline his plan in his state budget to be released next month.
