JFC to tackle state transportation funding next week

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - With gas tax revenues dropping off, Wisconsin's transportation fund is on the way to a deficit of $63.5 million in a little over two years.

The fund pays for highway construction projects, provides help to local governments and covers operations at the Division of Motor Vehicles and the Wisconsin State Patrol.

Money in the fund comes mostly from gasoline taxes and vehicle registration fees.

The Legislature's Joint Finance Committee is scheduled to take up transportation questions next Tuesday.

Possible strategies include delaying road maintenance jobs, borrowing more, increasing the gas tax, or shifting more tax dollars to the fund
