The Assembly Transportation Committee on Wednesday approved a bill that would put about $43 million in surplus revenue toward rehabilitating 11 road projects.
Assembly Bill 704 would get that money from the $84.6 million in excess revenue the nonpartisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau predicted will flow into the state’s transportation fund by June 30, 2015. For the bill to become law, it still must be passed by the state Legislature and signed by Gov. Scott Walker.
The 11 projects that would benefit from the additional money are:
- Highway 32 in Brown County
- Highway 114 in Calumet County
- Highway 42 in Door County
- a weighing station in Douglas County
- Highway 64 in Langlade County
- a separate stretch of Highway 64 in Lincoln County
- Highway 33 in Monroe County
- Highway 41 in Outagamie County
- Highway 60 in Sauk County
- Highway 64 in Taylor County
- Highway 12 in Walworth County
