STATEWIDE - Your daily commute could cost you more as the state tries to balance the transportation budget.
Some recommendations from the Transportation Finance and Policy Commission are raising the fees to register a vehicle and get a driver's license, and increasing the gas tax in Wisconsin.
Those increases would generate about $479 million a year for the next 10 years
Many of these ideas have already been rejected by Governor Scott Walker.
Walker said improving the state's infrastructure - including roads - is one of his priorities, but he's opposed to raising the gas tax. He's also against toll roads or limited toll lanes to raise money.
Governor Walker will outline his plan in his state budget next month.
In November 2006, nearly 60 percent of Wisconsin voters supported an amendment banning gay marriage.
Before Wisconsin lawmakers could consider a bill to allow gay marriage, voters would have to pass an amendment undoing the 2006 amendment language. But before that the Legislature would have to pass the amendment in two consecutive sessions.
ACROSS THE NORTHWOODS - A week with little to no rain pushed fire risks dangerously high across northern Wisconsin. A fire in Bayfield spanning 9-thousand acres destroyed 17 homes. Fire crews want everyone to be smart about burning this time of year.
A small burn got out of control on Loop Heights Road in Pine Lake today. Fire Chief, Brian Gehrig, says the weather conditions make it easy for fires to get out of control.
