Transportation Ballot Measures

54 of 71 Counties, WI

Type: Advisory

Outcome: Uncounted

More than 50 counties have agreed to place an advisory referendum on the November ballot, asking voters if the Wisconsin Constitution should be amended to prohibit any further transfers or lapses from the segregated transportation fund. Revenue in the segregated transportation fund comes from the state gas tax and vehicle registration fees. In recent years more than a billion dollars has been diverted from the transportation fund to shore up the general fund.

Actually amending the state constitution would require action by two successive state legislature sessions and voter approval of a binding statewide referendum.
