The League recently announced three primary legislative priorities for the 97th Michigan Legislature and transportation is one. Mayors, local leaders and others will ask the Legislature to take action on transportation funding. Solid transportation policies can create thousands of jobs and generate billions in development. Michigan’s transportation system and infrastructure are in desperate need of reinvestment. It is critical lawmakers increase the state’s investment in transportation – transit and road and bridge repairs – while ensuring local road needs are satisfied.
