In other transportation news, the top Republican in the Wisconsin Senate wants to undo Governor Tony Evers’ order that could send millions of dollars to The Hop. Scott Fitzgerald yesterday said he’s thinking about calling lawmakers back to Madison to override the governor. Fitzgerald is not happy how the Evers administration plans to spend 75 million-dollars in transportation funding. Some of that money could go to Milwaukee’s streetcar.
