Transportation Finance and Policy Commission member John Antaramian of Kenosha said Wednesday it will be an uphill battle to get the recommendations approved. But he says lawmakers and Governor Scott Walker must look at the needs of the state and the importance available to address them.
Antaramian says he has faith policy makers will deal with the issue.
MADISON (WKOW) -- Wisconsin's Transportation Finance and Policy Commission will release a report on Wednesday that will look at ways to close the state's transportation funding gap.
One option proposed is the mileage-based registration. It would apply to people who drive more than 3,000 miles per year.
It would add just over 1 cent per mile on top of the $75 dollars they pay each year to renew their license.
Drivers would have to document their annual mileage. The Commission is also expected to propose an increase in the gas tax.
Governor Scott Walker says he's against that idea.
