Local lawmaker critical of highway use fee for trucks

A local lawmaker is critical of the highway use fee on tractor trailers, approved in the final hours of the legislative session yesterday.  Brookfield Representative Steve Harding says there was significant opposition to the measure to tax trucks based upon their weight and distance traveled.  He was disappointed that an amendment failed, which would have moved several transportation-related return revenue streams from the General Fund back to the Special Transportation Fund.  Another failed amendment would have given an exemption to any truck used for retail or wholesale food delivery, agricultural commodities, or farm supplies.
