Voters to decide on constitutional amendment on transportation fund raids

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Voters will have the chance to give final approval in November of next year on a constitutional amendment keeping lawmakers from diverting money from the state transportation fund.

As expected, the Wisconsin Senate voted 25-8 Wednesday to put the question on the statewide ballot.

The Assembly passed the amendment last week.

Under the amendment, any money collected through the state fuel tax, fees imposed on driver’s license and titles for vehicles must go into the transportation fund.

Once in there, the money couldn’t be used for any state program not run by the Department of Transportation.
