Milwaukee County bus system to get one-third of stimulus transportation funds
The Milwaukee County bus system will get about one-third of Wisconsin's $82 million transit dollars under the federal economic stimulus package.
County Executive Scott Walker, who's been critical of the stimulus concept, says he'll accept the transit aid. That's because the Milwaukee bus system has massive fiscal problems.
Last year, two outside groups said the system would have to cut service by 35 percent next year unless it receives more state or local funding.
