The state-wide Referendum question regards the “Creation of a Transportation Fund. Shall section 9 (2) of article IV and section 11 of article Vlll of the constitution be created to require that revenues generated by use of the state transportation system be deposited
into a transaction fund administered by a department of transportation for the exclusive purpose of funding Wisconsin’s transportation systems and to prohibit any transfers or lapses from this fund?”
You must answer Yes, or No, to the state-wide referendum, which is intended to prevent the State of Wisconsin Legislature and Wisconsin Governor from borrowing money from the fund and use the money for other purposes.
Most people have been under the impression that money going into the Transportation Fund is used only for Transportation Dept. purposes. However, there is no such stipulation at present. This Referendum is intended to make it legally clear the Legislature and Governor’s budgets cannot transfer the Transportation Funds for any other use, no matter what political party.
