Mass transit took a step forward in Milwaukee yesterday.
First, we soft-launched our Milwaukee Streetcar t-shirts. You can buy one on our (beta) store for $15.
Second, Governor Jim Doyle held a well-attended press conference
with a handful of State Senators and local politicians at the Milwaukee Intermodal Station to announce a new regional transit authority plan. The Wisconsin State Legislature will take up the bill once the fall session commences. Doyle has published a handful of details outlining key principles
. It appears there is support from Senator’s such as John Lehman
, who didn’t endorse the previous proposal Doyle put forth in his budget.
We’ll have more coverage once the actual bill emerges.
