MADISON – The same day WMC learned about the potential plan to hike taxes on heavy trucks to raise revenue for the Department of Transportation, WMC Senior Vice President of Government Relations joined Vicki McKenna to discuss the business association’s strong opposition. In a release published Thursday, Manley called the proposal “anti-business and anti-consumer.” He ended the statement by saying, “Paying for the transportation budget on the backs of Wisconsin businesses is simply unacceptable.”
The rumored GOP proposal would create a 2.85 cent per mile tax on heavy trucks that deliver nearly all goods sold in Wisconsin – from groceries and gasoline to furniture and other manufactured products, nearly all consumer goods would cost more to be delivered. The total cost of the tax increase would be $250 million over the two-year budget.
