#LocalGovMatters – DOT Sec. Thompson

This week on #LocalGovMatters Gwyn drives out to the Hill Farms Building to interview Department of Transportation Secretary Designee Craig Thompson.

Gwyn starts off by asking Craig to talk about why DOT is always a sticky issue for the budget. Then Craig talks about project planning and timelines.

Tolling – it’s a big issue and lots of people are talking about it. Gwyn asks Craig to break down the pros and cons of tolling.

Gwyn asks Craig to discuss what happens if DOT doesn’t get funding for roads and what that means for statewide projects.

Craig breaks down the 8 cent gas tax proposal by Governor Evers and discusses how other states do registration fees and some about hybrids and electric cars.
