Mark Neumann would use high-speed rail money for tax cuts
Madison, Wis. (AP) -- Republican gubernatorial candidate Mark Neumann is promising to take $810 million in federal stimulus money earmarked to build a high speed rail line between Madison and Milwaukee and use it for tax cuts instead.
Neumann made the promise Wednesday during a debate with his Republican challenger Scott Walker. However, the money being sent to Wisconsin from the federal government is to be used only for high speed rail and nothing else.
Neumann says no one knows for sure what will happen with the money and if the state gets it, he will use it for tax cuts.
Walker also opposes the high speed rail line and says if he's elected, no train lines will be built anywhere in the state.
