Ex-Assembly speaker Fitzgerald now lobbying for traffic tech company


MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Former state Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald will help a traffic technology company get what it wants from his former lawmaking colleagues.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel said the Republican Fitzgerald set up a consulting business last August, soon after he finished last in a four-way primary for the U.S. Senate. And he has registered as a lobbyist for American Traffic Solutions.

The company’s Web site says it provides speeding and red-light safety cameras, plus technology to enforce toll booths.

Wisconsin does not allow tolls or cameras that catch traffic violators. But there’s been talk lately about allowing tolls on certain highways and lanes, to help pay for new and improved highways in the Badger State.

The Journal Sentinel says the firm is also represented by lobbyist Steve Foti – a former Assembly Majority Leader who pleaded guilty to illegally using his state office for political campaigning.
