Great timing, Frank

The Wisconsin Department of Transporation is proposing to spend hundreds of millions on an unfunded, unneeded freeway expansion projects while accelerating the Zoo Interchange reconstruction project for purely political purposes.

The Federal Highway Trust Fund is going broke, and here's how WisDOT Secretary Frank Busalacchi assesses the state's transporation founding outlook, according to the JS.

"If Congress does not address the revenue shortfall in the Highway Trust Fund, my state's funding, assuming no corrective action, will drop by nearly $100 million in 2009," he said.

Oh, yeah. Let's spend that money we don't have and pretend the bill is never going to come due.
