State Government


The state House is scheduled to meet one day this week to try and reach a compromise on 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.”

(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.
