Funding road repairs brings discussion in La Crosse

Finding a transportation solution for Wisconsin brings together politicians in La Crosse.

The Transportation Development Association held discussions about funding sustainable transportation in La Crosse Tuesday.

The discussion came as part of the Wisconsin Counties Association Annual Conference.

In a survey released by AAA earlier this month, 46 percent of respondents say they are willing to pay more in taxes.

“Now there’s no clear consensus as to which type of revenue stream or what type of increases they would be willing to support in order to create enough revenue to adequately fund the roads,” said Nick Jarmusz, Director of Public Affairs for AAA Wisconsin.

Sixteen percent of survey respondents supported any of the funding options presented in the AAA survey.
