AFP-Wisconsin Applauds Sweeping Department of Transportation Reforms

Jul 13, 2017 by AFP

MADISON, WI – Americans for Prosperity-Wisconsin today came out in strong support of LRB 3884, a bill to reform and modernize the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (DOT). The conservative reform measure comes after a recent audit uncovered widespread inefficiency, waste and abuse at the agency that is costing Wisconsin taxpayers millions of dollars each year.

AFP-WI State Director Eric Bott made the following statement:

“This common sense reform bill will get the DOT back on the right track while saving Wisconsin taxpayers millions of dollars. Sunshine is the best disinfectant, and by opening up more of the DOT’s management and operations to public scrutiny, Wisconsinites can have more confidence that DOT will be serving the needs of driving and riding public while being responsible stewards of taxpayer money. From providing DOT with more options for project delivery to fully repealing the prevailing wage, the DOT reform bill contains desperately needed reforms. We encourage legislators to co-sponsor LRB 3884.”
