Trumped Trolley

In a move to kill Mayor Tom Barrett's streetcar, The Joint Committee on Finance voted to accept a motion by Rep. Dale Kooyenga that would prohibit ratepayers from outside of Milwaukee to pay for costs associated with moving utilities to build the two mile trolley trail.

It seems to me that there has to be some way to use the $55 million dollars in federal money to improve the current transit system.  City and County legislators should put the full court press on Rep. Gwen Moore to use her influence to lobby the federal government to allow this change in usage.
