It says it began preparing its tracks for a high-speed rail extension in 2010 - without a contract, because former Gov. Jim Doyle wanted to move ahead quickly with the project. When Scott Walker became Governor in 2011, he rejected the money the federal government had awarded Wisconsin to expand high-speed rail, killing the plans.</p><p>The claims board has decided the state is not liable for reimbursing the railroad firm for the work it performed, because no contract existed.</p> Thu, 20 Jun 2013 16:57:53 +0000 Marge Pitrof 6262 at http://wuwm.com
