The Madison Common Council's Executive Committee voted 4-2 against a proposal for a $17 wheel tax on all cars registered in the City.

City Alder Dave Ahrens is a member of the Executive Committee and voted against the wheel tax. He said though Madison's roads and transit system need funding and attention, the revenue from this tax wouldn't improve those areas.
