Created in 1983, the 15-member Transportation Projects Commission
reviews major highway project candidates and makes
recommendations to the Governor and Legislature regarding projects to
be "enumerated" or included in the next two-year state budget.
The TPC includes five state senators, five Assembly representatives
and three citizen members. The Governor serves as the Commission
Chairman. The Wisconsin Department of Transportation
(WisDOT) Secretary serves as a non-voting member.
Typically, the Commission considers major highway project
candidates on a two-year cycle . In the fall of odd-numbered years, the
TPC begins the process by looking at projects to advance to the
environmental study stage.
In the fall of even numbered years, the Commission reviews, and can
recommend for enumeration, projects that have successfully completed
the environmental review phase. State law prevents the TPC from
recommending projects for enumeration unless funding is available to
begin work within six years.
