Busalacchi Knows Enough to Shut Up

The "gimme" season is on--various State of Wisconsin agencies are assembling their budget requests.

Corrections wants more than $1Bn, estimating that GPS tracking of sex offenders will cost $24 million in the first biennium.

Health and Family Services wants $443 million.

But DOT will survive without increasing the gas tax (now only 32.7 cents/gallon) AND without a registration-fee increase from the current $55.00.

Gee. Thought DOT was going to starve to death. Highways would crumble into dust. Potholes would swallow semi-trailers. The End of the World would commence right here in Wisconsin, probably on a State highway....
