Doyle says he opposes new regional transit plan

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Gov. Jim Doyle says he opposes a new regional transit plan for southeast Wisconsin unveiled by fellow Democrats in the state Assembly.

Doyle said he prefers the version that he worked on and announced in January along with business leaders in Milwaukee.

Doyle said Wednesday he believes his proposal has enough support to pass the Legislature but the new plan does not.

Lawmakers and Doyle are trying to find agreement on a plan to build a commuter-rail service linking Milwaukee, Kenosha and Racine and increase funding for the area’s bus systems. Time is running out, though, as the legislative session is set to end in April.
