Rep. Vos Statement on Southeastern Regional Transit Authority Legislation

Madison….Rep. Vos (R-Caledonia) released the following statement regarding the public hearing held today in the Assembly Transportation Committee on the Southeastern Regional Transit Authority Bill:

“Today’s hearing made one thing perfectly clear: Democrats want to ram through a plan that creates an unelected, unaccountable RTA to raise your taxes without a mandatory referendum.

“I don’t understand why, in this economy, they are so hell-bent on raising taxes on Wisconsin families.  I look forward to joining other Republicans as we stand on the side of Wisconsin taxpayers, not on the side of special interests and their high-priced, powerful lobbyists.”
