Scott Walker Statement on Rail Announcement

Wauwatosa – Scott Walker, Milwaukee County executive and candidate for governor, today released the following statement on the announcement that the state of Wisconsin would continue to spend millions of taxpayer dollars on a Milwaukee-Madison rail line:

“It’s reckless of Governor Doyle and Mayor Barrett to spend $810 million of taxpayer money on a boondoggle train when we can’t even afford to fix our roads and bridges.  Our state is facing a $2.5 billion hole in next year’s budget and a list a mile long of transportation needs.  As governor, I will stop this train dead in its tracks and advocate for this money to be used for roads and bridges instead."
