Michigan road funding


(MPRN-Lansing) Governor Rick Snyder says he hasn’t given up on getting a deal for more than a $1 billion dollars in new road revenue through the Legislature. 


Michigan League for Public Policy President Gilda Jacobs says eliminating the state Earned Income Tax Credit to help fund a road funding package amounts to “paving the roads on the backs of working poor people in the state.” 


Represenatives Leave Lansing Without a Road Deal

Jul 16, 2015


(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. 


(MPRN-Lansing) GOP leaders in the state House are working to assemble enough Republican votes to pass a road funding plan that’s likely to raise taxes.


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.
