Michigan gov: Legislature must 'get off the dime' on road fixes

from The Associated Press via KSL-TV

With her proposed 45-cents-a-gallon fuel tax hike stalled, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said that fixing the roads is still the "No. 1 issue" despite the Republican-led Legislature prioritizing an overhaul of Michigan's car insurance law.

Whitmer, who vowed to veto the legislation due to "a lot of shortcomings," said "there might be a path forward, but it's too early to tell." She made clear, however, that her priority is raising $2.5 billion in tax revenue for roads, as part of a budget plan to also free up money for education by stopping financial "shell games" that have been used to patch potholes. more
