Michigan Municipal League Statement on Road Funding

LANSING Michigan — The following is the Michigan Municipal League’s statement regarding the road funding package approved by the state Legislature. The statement can be attributed to Dan Gilmartin, League CEO and Executive Director.

“It’s an over-statement to say that a $1.2 billion plan with $600 million in new revenue and $600 in General Fund dollars will fix Michigan’s crumbling infrastructure. This is especially true given that two-thirds of the new revenue will simply replace money already budgeted for roads in the current fiscal year and the plan doesn’t fully phase in for almost a decade.”

For additional comments on this issue, please contact the League’s John LaMacchia at 517-908-0303 or jlamacchia@mml.org
