(MPRN-Lansing) There’s no road funding deal to speak of as state representatives leave Lansing for the week. That means a vote on any plan will have to wait until next week – and possibly until the fall.
The state House briefly returns from its summer break this week to take up the debate over road funding. It will consider a state Senate plan that differs widely from the plan the House approved last month.
The state Senate has approved its $1.5 billion plan to boost road funding. Lt. Gov. Brian Calley cast two tie-breaking votes on bills to gradually raise Michigan’s gas tax by 15 cents over three years.
