Miller Doubtful sation would result, he said. Assemblyman Elmer C. Nitsch-ke (R-Beaver Dam), chairman of the Assembly Highways committee, also said he doubted the program will pass. He predicted it will not be taken up until the Legislature returns after recess, and said “I think we should get our revenue and budget (measures) through first.” June 7 Recess Seen The Legislature will probably recess on or about June 7, and come back in September unless Reynolds calls it back earlier. Reynolds told reporters at a briefing on the highway program Mon-dayaflemoon that the 1966 date is predicted on approval of “Project 66” by July. Assembly Speaker Robert D. Haase (R-Marinette) said h i s main concern was with the main tenance costs the governor’s highway program would entail. The project might take care Wisconsin line. "Highway 15 from Beloit to Milwaukee, an essential route considered by the Toll Road Commission. "Highway 51 from Portage, on the Interstate, to Tomahawk, permitting fast travel all the way to north-central Wisconsin. Highway 41 from the western border of Brown county to Suamico. "Highway 141 from the Milwaukee county line to Route 57, permitting travel on divided highways all the way from Chicago around Milwaukee, to north-eastern Wisconsin, and creases of $9 a year for cars three or less years old, $7 a year on cars four to six years old, $5 year on cars seven to nine years old, $3 a year on cars nine to 12 years old, and $1 a year on cars 13 years or older. The increases would go into effect in January, 1964. The governor recommended no increases in fuel taxes, an idea he had considered and rejected. Trucks now pay annual fees ranging from $16 to $984 a year, depending on weight. Their fees would rise from $4 to $144 a year according to weight. Dairy trucks, which are taxed less by weight than other trucks, would have their yearly fees increased by between $4 and $192 a year, according to weight.
