MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Un-registered tractors could be driven on Wisconsin state highways for “occasional personal use” under a provision added to the state budget.

The Legislature’s Joint Finance Committee on Wednesday voted unanimously to allow un-registered tractors to be driven on the state’s roads for special occasions, including parades and antique vehicle club events.

Democratic Sen. Jon Erpenbach had questioned what “personal use” of a tractor would entail, saying it could be a Sunday drive that would clog up traffic.

But Republican Sen. Luther Olsen says the change is intended for antique tractors intended for parades and shows that aren’t registered. He says tractors used in field work can already operate on roads without being registered.
