Scott Walker Statement on High Speed Rail Announcement

Wauwatosa – Scott Walker, Milwaukee County executive and candidate for governor, today released the following statement on the Governor Doyle’s announcement regarding the high-speed rail line from Milwaukee to Madison:

"Every announcement by Governor Doyle and Mayor Barrett on their controversial train boondoggle further commits our state to their pet project that taxpayers literally cannot afford.  Our state’s transportation fund has been raided to the tune of $1.2 billion, which has delayed badly needed investment in our existing roads and bridges across Wisconsin.  As governor, I will stop this misguided and wasteful project.”
