Madison…Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) released the following statement regarding the Department of Transportation (DOT) reform bill (LRB 3884), which is being circulated for co-sponsorships.

“Under Governor Walker’s leadership, the Department of Transportation has saved more than $1.5 billion through efficiencies since 2011. But there are still reforms that need to be made, especially those pointed out in the legislative audit of the agency.

“I support many of the reforms and would like to see them included in a comprehensive package to address the transportation needs of our state. I agree with the bill’s authors that a full repeal of prevailing wage is an essential component of a DOT reform package.

“I look forward to working with my colleagues in both chambers to improve the DOT to bring about a more effective and efficient agency. However, it’s important to understand that reforms alone won’t resolve the transportation funding issue that must be addressed in order to maintain a reliable and safe highway system.”
