(Lansing-MPRN) Many Democrats are attacking comments made on the House floor on Wednesday they say are derogatory toward the LGBT community. “Even California – the land of fruits and nuts – has deregulated this industry,” said state Rep. Al Pscholka (R-Stevensville), who was speaking about a bill he sponsored related to installing residential stairway chairlifts. 

The state house has passed a set of bills that would provide the government with money for fixing roads and bridges. That’s according to Gongwer News Service, which reports the proposed legislation would deliver about $450 million to the state’s infrastructure projects each year.

Most of that amount would be raised by pulling money from fuel sales and use taxes out of the general fund.
