Gubernatorial candidates oppose addition of toll roads

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The three major candidates for governor in Wisconsin are united in their opposition to toll roads for all drivers.

However, Republican Scott Walker said he’s open to discussing optional express lanes where drivers without passengers can pay to share a lane that buses and car-poolers use for free.

Walker said he wants to find ways to support the state’s roads and bridges and he would be in favor of banning raids on the state’s transportation fund.

A spokesman for Republican Mark Neumann said Wisconsin needs to find new ways to lower taxes and fees, not create new ones.

A spokesman for Democrat Tom Barrett said there hasn’t been serious talk of toll roads for years in Wisconsin and Barrett has no plans for them.
