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 expected to be finalized 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 are to be released Wednesday by the Transportation Finance and Policy Commission.
Many of the group's ideas have already been rejected by Gov. Scott Walker.
Walker has said improving the state's infrastructure is one of his priorities, but he is opposed to raising the gas tax. Walker has also come out against toll roads or limited toll lanes to raise money.
He will outline his plan in his state budget to be released next month.
